Nanomachines: a light-driven molecular pump

Sevick, Edie


Machines are defined as devices that transform energy into heat and work, a conceptualization born out of the industrial revolution and embodied in classical equilibrium thermodynamics. The classical description, however, applies to systems that are so large and operate over such long timescales that thermal fluctuations are negligible.
