Craig Marshall Onodera successfully defended his Masters Thesis

Mr. Craig Marshall Onodera successfully defended his thesis on “Structural DNA Origami: Engineering Supermolecular Self-Assembly for Nanodevice Fabrication” on March 9th, 2012.   According to Craig, “ two challenges encountered in nanotechnology are the ability to create nanostructures inexpensively and the ability to arrange nanomaterials with a precision commensurate with their size…Using gold nanoparticles and semiconductor quantum dots, scaffolded DNA origami was explored for future nanoelectronic and nano-optic applications.  Nanostructure design, synthesis, and characterization focused on increasing the site-specificity and attachment efficiency between nanoparticle arrays and the DNA origami scaffold.”
