Flagellar motor is a member of the molecular motor family that provides mechanical power at the cellular level to many living organisms. In this paper, this feature of bacteria is used to power biological nanodevices. The preliminary results indicate that the flagellar motor device is at least as sensitive as existing sensors for explosives, including the conventional electrochemical and the more portable biological-based designs.
