Nanomotors emble Quantum Dots into Glowing Rings

A new nano technique could make chameleon-like camouflage possible, say researchers at Sandia National Laboratory. In this video, you can watch a serious of nanomotors (really, a set of proteins) emble a set of glowing quantum dots into visible rings. The process is reversible, raising the possibility of fast-color changes produced at the nanoscale. Duration […]
