A conceptual drawing of the new molecular device. For experiments outside the human body (in vitro), the device would nest on the cell’s membrane: a “reporter” molecule (outside the membrane) would detect the local electric field when activated by red light; an attached “modifier” molecule (inside the membrane) would alter that electric field when activated by blue light.
