Abstract: The aim of this research is to develop a device that will move a rod in 8 nm controllable steps. The researchers are utilising the biological principles and materials of photosynthetic light (energy) harvesting and transfer, ATPsynthase, ATP production and Kinesin motor protein movement. It has been designed in a modular concept with three sections: energy trapping (light harvesting) and transfer; energy conversion to produce ATP; and mechanical translation. The potential applications of such a device are in drug delivery, precision nano-engineering, minimal invasive nano-surgery and environmental detoxification
