2D materials for translocating and sensing DNA
Maria Fyta


In this topic, the use of novel two dimensional (2D) materials for producing nanopores is discussed. The variety of 2D materials already used for nanopores and their characteristics will be outlined, as well as the reasons for using such nanopore materials. Specific methodologies to simulate these 2D nanopores will also be addressed.
