English: Figure 6. AFM Images of DAO-E Crystals

(A) A large templated crystal in a 5-tile reaction (no R-11). A single ‘1' in the input row (asterisk) initiates a Sierpinski triangle, which subsequently devolves due to errors. Mismatch errors within ‘0' domains initiate isolated Sierpinski patterns terminated by additional errors at their corners.

(B) A large untemplated fragment in a 5-tile reaction (no S-11). Large triangles of ‘0's can be seen. Crystals similar to this are also seen in samples lacking the nucleating structure.

(C) Several large crystals in a 6-tile reaction, some with more zeros than ones, some with more ones than zeros. It is difficult to determine whether these crystals are templated or not.

(D) An average of several scans of the boxed region from (C), containing roughly 1,000 tiles and 45 errors.

(E) An average of several scans of a Sierpinski triangle that initiated by a single error in a sea of zeros and terminated by three further errors (a 1% error rate for the 400 tiles here). Red crosses in (D) and (E) indicate tiles that have been identified (by eye) to be incorrect with respect to the two tiles from which they receive their input. Scale bars are 100 nm.
