The idea to freely control the atomic-scale structure of matter has intrigued scientists for many decades. A fascinating way to approach this goal is the use of complex functional molecules as pre-fabricated building blocks for nano-scale devices and machines. In the MoMaLab we explore how far the principles of classical engineering, mechanical manipulation and piecewise assembly, can be scaled down to the atomic and molecular scale. Read more...
