Step towards building tiny, molecular motors

Abstract:
A step towards building tiny motors on the scale of a molecule has been demonstrated by researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). In an article appearing in the current issue of Science magazine, the researchers from the two institutions described how they were able through light or electrical stimulation to cause a molecule to rotate on an axis in a controlled fashion, similar to the action of a motor.
