LWL17: Micromachined Photosynthetic Fuel Cells


The project aims to develop micromachined biological photosynthetic fuel cells (uPFC) for two classes of devices: (1) micro-scale mobile sensors and micro communication devices and (2) nano-scale molecular motors such as ATP synthase and myosin. For the first class of devices, the uPFCs are competing technologies to other micro power sources such as micro batteries, micro engines, and thin-film solar cells. However, for the second class, the uPFC is a pioneering effort to engineer power sources for future molecular and biomimetic devices.
