Direct conductivity measurements of thin uniform gold-coated DNA nanowires are presented. Gold-coated DNA conductive wires deposited on a mica surface are visualized by SEM and conductivity of the wires are measured using nanomanipulators built inside the microscope. The measurements show that the conductivity is limited by defects, and the thicker the coating the higher the conductivity of the wires. These gold-coated DNA nanowires are promising candidates for molecular electronics. DNA-base nanomaterial to be used in new DNA-based molecular electronics.
