The effect of direct or indirect binding of intercalant molecules on DNA structure is of fundamental importance in understanding the biological functioning of DNA. Here we report on self-suspended DNA nanobundles as ultrasensitive nanomechanical resonators for structural studies of DNA-ligand complexes. Such vibrating nanostructures represent the smallest mechanical resonator entirely composed of DNA. A correlative analysis between the mechanical and structural properties is exploited to study the intrinsic changes of double strand DNA, when interacting with different intercalant molecules (YOYO-1 and GelRed) and a chemotherapeutic drug (Cisplatin), at different concentrations. Possible implications of our findings are related to the study of interaction mechanism of a wide category of molecules with DNA, and to further applications in medicine, such as optimal titration of chemotherapeutic drugs and environmental studies for the detection of heavy metals in human serum.

Metal-semiconductor interfaces play a crucial role not only for regulating the electronic conduction mechanism but also in determining new functionalities in nanosized devices. In this work, we reported the investigation of the junction properties of single ZnO NWs asymmetrically contacted by means of a Pt electrochemically inert and a Cu electrochemically active electrode. At low applied voltages, these devices operate as diodes where the conduction mechanism was found to be dominated by the Schottky barrier at the Cu/ZnO interface. Junction parameters such as the Schottky barrier height, the ideality factor and the series resistance have been analyzed according to the thermionic emission theory. Different methods for parameter retrieval from I-V-T measurements are discussed and compared. A potential fluctuation model is considered in order to account for barrier inhomogeneities, revealing the presence of two Gaussian distribution of barrier heigths. On the other hand, new device features arise from electrochemical dissolution and migration of Cu ions along the NW when high electric fields are implied. These electrochemical processes are underlaying the resistive switching and memristive behaviour observed in single ZnO NWs, as suggested also by direct observation of Cu nanoclusters along the nanostructures after the switching events.
