Yale engineers have created a process that may revolutionize the manufacture of nano-devices from computer memory to biomedical sensors by exploiting a novel type of metal. The material can be molded like plastics to create features at the nano-scale and yet is more durable and stronger than silicon or steel. The work is reported in the February 12 issue of Nature.
If we humans do not kill ourselves off we will in the next 20 years or so see things that will make the past 2000 years seem like nothing happen.
This is the missing link in the field of micro fabrication!
