Structured Colloids: Helices, Pacmen, Patches, and Self-replication

David Pine, Professor of Physics, New York University

Spanos Auditorium

This seminar is part of the Jones Seminars on Science, Technology, and Society series

We are developing new kinds of colloids that interact with each other via specific directional interactions. Using a variety of interactions, including magnetic, lock-and-key shape recognition, and complementary DNA base-pair binding, we build complex coilloidal microstructures and seek to develop a scheme whereby these structures can self-replicate.
