Jason Locklin received an NSF CAREER Award to develop microscopic switches controlled by light.

"Light as a stimulus can provide the ability to remotely control sensor response with high speed and spatial precision," said Locklin. "The challenge right now is to create a generic methodology to trigger a stable active or passive state on a molecular level."

The research could have a major impact for creating devices with purposes as varied as drug delivery and optical data storage.
