NanoTrain: programable colloidal nanomachine

Project: Research

Project Details


For years scientists have dreamt of nanomachines and nanorobots, which allows precise interactions with nanoscale objects. Various types of nanomachines has been invented and tested, however many of key bottlenecks remain. In the NanoTrain project we aim to develop a fully programmable nanomachine, with own efficient and directional propulsion system, which could take on board arbitrary cargoes and be easily controlled e.g. by external magnetic fields. Our concept based on sequential capillarity-assisted particle assembly approach (sCAPA) can open-up new possibilities for building nano-scale devices e.g. fully controlled shuttles devices for targeted delivery.
