Abstract
I will describe a new technique to trap matter at the nanometer scale in fluids. Rather than apply external fields to the object of interest, our approach relies on spatial tailoring of the interaction between an object and its neighbouring surfaces in order to create spatial potential minima in three dimensions. We demonstrate how the strong and long-ranged electrostatic interaction can be modulated by tailoring substrate geometry to achieve stable spatial trapping of charged objects, as small as single proteins in solution.
