University Of Pennsylvania’s researcher Mohsen Azadi and his team levitate object using light.

At University of Pennsylvania in the mechanical engineer Igor Bargatin’s lab, Mohsen Azadi and his team were able to successfully demonstrate levitation of an object using light. Team built a "nanocardboard,” a material that’s as thin as a few strands of DNA and weighs less than a thousandth of a gram, but stiff enough to resist flopping for levitation. Crookes radiometer - also known as a light mill, the instrument is essentially a glass bulb under partial vacuum with paper vanes that are b...
