Two days race by using NanoCars made by molecules has ended yesterday. The competition brought 6 teams from all over the world (USA, Japan, Germany, France, Switzerland, Poland and Austria) to the CNRS, the French National Center for Scientific Research, in which molecular machines compete on a nano-sized racetrack. These “NanoCars” or molecule-cars can have real wheels, an actual chassis… and are propelled by the energy of electric pulses! Nothing is visible to the naked eye, however, a unique electron microscope allows us to “see” what is going on in this amazing competition.
