Le petit prix
2016 will see Toulouse in France host one of the more unusual international races. The track will be a (111) crystalline gold surface at 5K within a UHV scanning tunnelling microscope. The race will be the first NanoCar Race for molecule-cars. It is intended that the molecule-vehicles will have a chemical structure of about one hundred of atoms, preferably with 4 wheels, a chassis and a molecular motor. During the races the vehicles can be propelled using tunnel electrons passing through the molecule-car, also by light or by nano-magnetic effects.
