Gang: Nanoscale Sculpturing Leads to Unusual Packing of Nanocubes

Oleg Gang, Professor of Chemical Engineering and Applied Physics and Material Science, is part of a team of scientists from Columbia Engineering and Brookhaven National Laboratory who has shown that cube-shaped nanoparticles, or nanocubes, coated with single-stranded DNA chains, assemble into an unusual “zigzag” arrangement that has never been observed before at the nanoscale or macroscale. Their discovery is reported in Sciences Advances.
