The University of Pittsburgh received a $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation to develop a method to advance nanoscale technology by allowing scientists to observe, probe and control molecules.
"Our goal is to develop methods for interacting with single molecules in order to observe and control how they respond to stimulation by light or electrons to undergo chemical reactions or specific mechanical motions," said Hrvoje Petek, professor of physics and chemistry at Pitt's School of Arts and Sciences and co-director of the Petersen Institute of NanoScience and Engineering.
