The movement of microtubules along surfaces functionalized with Kinesim-Microtubule biomolecular nanomotors was analyzed. In order to allow simple channnel functionalization and microtubule introduction a hierarchical channnel approach was used. The capped channnels that provide three dimensional microtubule confinement were investigated. The channels were shown to provide a platform for integrating biomolecular nanomotors with microfabricated sensors and control devices.
