Writing a 10nm point size
I caught this today ... IBM going further and further with their molecular-scale lithography. They are now able to write compounds onto a substrate at sizes down to 10 nanometers. We are getting closer and closer to molecular manufacturing at a whole new scale.
IBM uses atomic microscope for direct writing. IBM has unveiled a new method of direct writing (like an inkjet printer) to substrates that harnesses an atomic force microscope (AFM) to electronically control molecular-scale lithography.
For semiconductors, IBM's new electronically controlled ... [KurzweilAI.net Accelerating Intelligence News]
