  • Measured in nanometers, or billionths of a meter, the scale of the manufacturing has become so small that researchers say they may be within a couple of years of a technological wall - the point at which building smaller or more efficient chips becomes impractical due to power constraints and the physical limits of how close silicon atoms can be placed to each other and still behave as required.

  • Stellacci and his team have varied a key imaging parameter: they cause the point to vibrate only a few nanometers (as opposed to tens to hundred of nanometers, which is typical).
