Researchers Create Light-Driven Submersible Nanomachines

A team of researchers from North Carolina State University and Rice University has created UV light-driven, unimolecular ‘submarines’ that contain just 244 atoms. Each of the nanomachines has a motor powered by UV light. With each full revolution, the motor’s tail-like propeller moves the machine forward 18 nm. And with the motors running at more [...] —> Read More
