ElectricSteve writes “Scientists at Cornell University report they can now use a light beam carrying a single milliwatt of power to move objects and even change the optical properties of silicon from opaque to transparent at the nanometric scale.” As the article says, such an advancement “could prove very useful for the future of micro-electromechanical (MEMS) and micro-optomechanical (MOMS) systems.”
