A working motor powered only by laser light has been demonstrated by researchers at the International Christian University in Tokyo, Japan. Light-powered motors will work in areas with high magnetic fields unsuitable for conventional motors, such as such as MRI medical scanners.
The announcement bodes well for designers of medical and industrial machinery which currently require heavy, expensive shielding for their electric motors. It also gives a boost to research into nanotechnology as initially laser-powered motors will be exceptionally tiny - on the molecular scale, in fact.
