Yale University researchers say they've discovered a repulsive light force that can be used to control components on silicon microchips. The scientists said their finding is important because it means future nanodevices might be controlled by light rather than electricity. The same Yale team of scientists previously discovered an attractive force of light and showed how it could be manipulated to move components in semiconducting micro- and nano-electrical systems.
