Taking cues from DNA research, photosynthesis, and nanotechnologies, a team at the University of Toronto has engineered a new kind of "artificial molecule" that can be assembled into wholly new classes of nanomaterials, including one that can direct and control energy absorbed from light. They've basically built a self-assembling antenna for light out of quantum dots that could lead to wholly new ways of manipulating and harvesting light energy....
