Advances in fluorescence microscopy of single-molecule DNA and the preparation of well defined surfaces with end-grafted DNA chains has allowed unprecedented scrutiny of the equilibrium and out of equilibrium behavior of single polymer chains near an mpenetrable wall. The physics of polymers in such restricted configurations that include also confined slit-or tube-like geometries of nano-scale dimensions is of importance not only for crude recovery from porous media, for lubrication or for colloidal stabilization but also for the development of biomolecular analysis methods within the context of genomics and for the control of bioadhesion.
