In Toulouse will be a race of nano-cars

В Тулузе состоится гонка нано-автомобилей (видео) In April 2017, in Toulouse (France), with the assistance of the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), unique nano-car competitions will be held. Each of the 4 participants in the race consists of no more than a hundred atoms. The surface for the competition will be the surface of the chip made of pure gold. The races will be held at a temperature of minus 270 Celsius, which is close to absolute zero and in complete vacuum. The technical conditions for the races limit the number of simultaneously participating nano-cars to 4 units. It is precisely this number of small objects that can be monitored by a specially tuned tunneling microscope (a standard tunneling microscope works with one object). The structures of nano-objects participating in races do not provide for the attributes of a traditional car and are a molecule that will be assembled directly on the plane of the chip. The start of the competition is scheduled for April 28, at the Materials Development and Structural Research Center. The race continues for 36 hours. The event will be directly broadcast on the YouTube channel.This will not be the first competition of this kind, back in 2013, the staff of the University of Toulouse Gwenel Rapen and Christian Joachim initiated similar events. Despite the fact that at the moment such competitions have no practical effect and are held to attract the interest of potential investors, these technical innovations can be applied to perform complex tasks. Nano-objects can serve for targeted transportation of drugs, delivery of nano-devices to hard-to-reach places.
