• #### ALMA Observations Show Major Mergers Among the Host Galaxies of Fast-growing, High-redshift, Supermassive Black Holes ﻿

(IOP Publishing, 2017-02-10)
We present new ALMA band-7 data for a sample of six luminous quasars at $z$ $\simeq$ 4.8, powered by fast-growing supermassive black holes (SMBHs) with rather uniform properties: the typical accretion rates and black hole ...
• #### Single molecule based SNP detection using designed DNA carriers and solid-state nanopores ﻿

(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017-01-07)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) play a crucial role as molecular markers in medical and diagnostic application. We demonstrate a nanopore based method for SNP detection at the single molecule level. Designed DNA ...
• #### Weak localization and weak antilocalization in doped germanium epilayers ﻿

(American Institute of Physics, 2017-02-07)
The magnetoresistance of 50 nm thick epilayers of doped germanium is measured at a range of temperatures down to 1.6 K. Both n- and p-type devices show quantum corrections to the conductivity in an applied magnetic field, ...
• #### Quantifying Nanomolar Protein Concentrations Using Designed DNA Carriers and Solid-State Nanopores ﻿

(American Chemical Society, 2016-06-08)
Designed "DNA carriers" have been proposed as a new method for nanopore based specific protein detection. In this system, target protein molecules bind to a long DNA strand at a defined position creating a second level ...
