Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are cell-derived membrane structures that circulate in body fluids and show considerable potential for noninvasive diagnosis. EVs possess surface chemistries and encapsulated molecular cargo that reflect the physiological state of cells from which they originate, including the presence of disease. In order to fully harness the diagnostic potential of EVs, there is a critical need for technologies that can profile large EV populations without sacrificing single EV lev...

Nanopores embedded in two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials are a promising emerging technology for osmotic power generation. Here, coupling our new AFM-based pore fabrication approach, tip-controlled local breakdown (TCLB), with a hybrid membrane formed by coating silicon nitride (SiN) with hexagonal boron nitride (hBN), we show that high osmotic power density can be obtained in systems that do not possess the thinness of atomic monolayers. In our approach, the high osmotic performance arises from...

Agitated strings serve as macroscale models of spontaneous knotting, providing valuable insight into knotting dynamics at the microscale while allowing explicit analysis of the resulting knot topologies. We present an experimental setup for confined macroscale knot formation via tumbling along with a software interface to process complex knot data. Our setup allows characterization of knotting probability, knot complexity, and knot formation dynamics for knots with as many as 50 crossings. We fi...

Here we demonstrate nano-scale liposome templating using dielectrophoretic (DEP) force. When an AC electric field is applied between two parallel electrodes, the resulting DEP force will trap and physically confine the targets, allowing for dynamic manipulation without the need for mechanical components or hydrodynamic force. Moreover, due to the frequency dependence of the DEP effect, the physical confinement is adjustable and can be reversed by tuning the frequency. We believe that this approa...
