Molecular gates spin photons from chemicals
News & Analysis  
6/27/2005   Post a comment
The human eye employs millions of nanoscale photoreceptors that output chemical signals when they are stimulated by photons. By reversing that process, a team of researchers in Northern Ireland and Japan has engineered a tiny molecular transistor that emits photons when supplied with the right chemicals.
