A novel carbon nanotube electronic device is proposed: a light-controlled electronic switch. A charged molecule has been designed for a noncovalent modification of the nanotube. Photon absorption by the molecule results in nanomechanical switching of the charge position which controls the electron/hole transport through the nanotube.
