Light-Activated Molecular Machines — with Ivan Aprahamian

October 19, 2021

Ivan Aprahamian, author of the 2020 ACS Central Science paper "The Future of Molecular Machines," kicks off Season 4 with a look at recent advancements to light-activated molecular motors. Applications include smart drug delivery and nanomedicine, applied spectroscopy, functional materials, and more. Nick Vamivakas, University of Rochester professor of quantum optics and quantum physics, discusses how to build a quantum workforce: How do we educate its future members, what will they do, and how do we chart their progress?
