DNA translocation through graphene nanopores
Maria Fyta


In this topic, the use of graphene as a nanopore material is discussed. The choice for this material will be discussed and compared to other materials used as nanopores. The detection mechanisms of DNA nucleotides passing through a graphene nanopore will be analyzed. The structural, dynamic, electronic, and transport properties of graphene nanopores will be presented.
