NanoCar Race par CNRS-en

Researchers from around the world are gathering at CNRS to develop nanoscale race cars. Each car is just one molecule in size and fuelled around the track by electrons from a scanning tunnelling microscope. The race is scheduled to take place on the 14th October and is expected to last a nail biting 38 hours. More details on how to race cars at the nanoscale in the movie above.

There are more on the latest developments in scanning probe microscopy coming soon in the Nanotechnology focus collection to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Nobel Prize for scanning tunnelling microscopy, and the first report of atomic force microscopy.
