Itai Cohen and Paul McEuen research team uses magnets to mimic specific binding in DNA

Sometimes it’s best to let the magnets do all the work. A team led by physics professors Itai Cohen and Paul McEuen is using the binding power of magnets to design self-assembling systems that potentially can be created in nanoscale form.

Their paper, “Magnetic Handshake Materials as A Scale-Invariant Platform for Programmed Self-Assembly,” published Nov. 21 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Read the full article at the Cornell Chronicle.
