Design and fabrication of asymmetric nanopores using pulsed PECVD
Manipulating matter at nanometric length scales is important for many electronic, chemical and biological applications. Structures such as nanopores demonstrate a phenomenon known as hindered transport which can be exploited in analytical applications such as DNA sequencing, ionic transistors, and molecular sieving. Precisely controlling the size, geometry and surface characteristics of the nanopores is important for realizing these applications. In this work, we employ relatively large template structures (~ 100 nm) produced by track-etching or electron beam lithography. The pore size is then ...
