23 February 2006 DNA: new class of polymer
Author Affiliations +
Suitable organic and polymeric based materials for electronic and photonic applications must possess the desired electromagnetic and optical properties to achieve optimal device performance in order to be more competitive with their inorganic counterparts. A new class of biopolymer, processed from purified marine-based deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), has been investigated for use in both electronic and photonic applications and has demonstrated promise as an excellent dielectric and optical waveguide material. In this paper we present examples of devices using this new DNA-based biopolymer.
