The pilot study describes a novel method for preparing nano-sized particles from collagen II using a high-voltage electrostatic field system. Observations from transmission electron microscopy showed that, in one of the cases, the nano-sized collagen II particles exhibited good sphericity, and the particles were in the range of 23.3±1.7 nm in diameter at the experimental setting of 3 kV cm<...

The similarity in stability characteristics between multiscale circular cylindrical structures is revealed. Two detailed structures are explored. One is the circular cylindrical shell on an engineering scale, and another is the circular cylindrical lipid bilayer vesicle on a micro- or nanoscale. The critical stability of the vesicle acted on by uniformly distributed radial pressure is analysed. Th... View full abstract»

Nanofluidic channel arrays, which have a width of about 40 nm, depth of 60 nm and length of 50 μm, were created using a focused-ion-beam milling instrument on a silicon nitride film swiftly and exactly, as is necessary. Stained λ-DNA molecules were put inside these sub-100 nm conduits by capillary force and they were stretched and transferred along these conduits, which were dealt with a... View full abstract»
