Nanocar Race II

The Nanocar Race is the world’s smallest race, in which vehicles are molecules conducted by the tip of a STM microscope.

The Nanocar Race is the world’s smallest race, in which vehicles are molecules conducted by the tip of a STM microscope. The ultimate goal of this competition is to advance the development and manipulation of nanomachines capable of performing real work, such as carrying molecular charge.
Eight worldwide certified teams will compete on March 24th, 2022 at 11:00. The winner of the Nanocar Race II will be the team that manages to cover the maximum possible distance in a span of 24 hours.
All teams will drive their nanocars remotely from Toulouse (France), while physically the nanocars will be at the STM microscopes of each participating institution: Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies-IMDEA- in Nanoscience (Madrid), Center for Materials Physics (San Sebastian), Technische Universität (Dresden, Germany), University of Graz (Austria), University of Strasbourg (France), International Center for Materials Nanoarchitecture (Ibaraki, Japan), Ohio University (United States) and Paul Sabatier University (Toulouse, France).
