Light-activating materials by molecular machines (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Zouheir Sekkat

Paper Abstract

I will show that, in concept, particles should move when they are photochemically activated in a gradient of light intensity, and the motion occurs in the direction of the vector of the intensity gradient, and its efficiency depends on the respective orientations of the vectors of light polarization and intensity gradient. The theory describes well experimental observations, and it opens important perspectives for the manipulation of matter by light.
