Purdue University conducted a study recently. The study consisted of a nanoscale rotor that was created and levitated in a vacuum, to be blasted into spin-motion by laser technology. The research study reveals how different substances respond under extreme conditions and how friction behaves in a vacuum. On a quantum level, researchers were able to bombard the nano-dumbbells in place with polarized light. With it's light in one plane, they wrote in the study that was published online on July 20, 2018 in the journal Physical Review Letters. #TechnologyThursday#Laser#Motor #Digital#Business#Traffic#DigitalBusinessTraffic
