Latest Nanomotor Stories
Researchers have created a new type of molecular motor made of DNA and demonstrated its potential by using it to transport a nanoparticle along the length of a carbon nanotube.
While those wonderful light sabers in the Star Wars films remain the figment of George Lucasâ€™ fertile imagination, light mills â€“ rotary motors driven by light â€“ that can power objects thousands of times greater in size are now fact.
Using an RNA-powered nanomotor, University of Cincinnati (UC) biomedical engineering researchers have successfully developed an artificial pore able to transmit nanoscale material through a membrane.
Sunflowers track the sun as it moves from east to west. But people usually have to convert sunlight into electricity or heat to put its power to use.
The motor functions as a nanotransporter by moving and rotating cargo from one end of the carbon nanotube to the other
