Morning all read this and thought of this forum
the team made scaffolds out of polyacrylate, an absorbent material used in nappies, and built centimetre-sized structures inside by sticking molecules to anchor points using lasers. These were then shrunk by to one thousandth of the original volume by applying an acid.
The researchers created objects, such as hollow linked cubes and an etching of Alice in Wonderland , using the method. Each was around 1 cubic millimetre in size, containing structural details of around 50 nanometres.
And I know Dave didn’t invent it either, only explained it best and took the glory!!
They’ve been saying this a long time…“What has been will be again, / what has been done will be done again; / there is nothing new under the sun.”
