    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Regularly arrayed mesoscopic lines of DNA, parallel to the receding direction of the solvent, can be prepared by simple casting from an aqueous solution. Photocurrent of single line of DNA assemblies containing intercalators, acridine orange, was generated when the patterned cast film was irradiated by the light at 480nm, through the excitation of the intercalators.
