Nanoscale robots that can flow through blood or repair complex electronics may yet be a possibility with the help of a new strategy developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Although devices such as computer processors can effectively handle electrical signals at the length scale of 10 nanometers, achieving motion at the nanoscale has remained elusive.

“If we want to conquer the nanoscale, we need efficient ways to convert electrical signals to mechanical signals on comparable Read more…
