Go Speed Racer! Revving up the world's fastest nanomotors
WASHINGTON, May 1, 2008 In a major step toward a practical energy source for powering tomorrows nanomachines, researchers in Arizona report development of a new generation of sub-microscopic nanomotors
that are up to 10 times more powerful than existing motors. Their study is scheduled for the Ma...
