Photo of the new nanopatterning tool at IBM Research - Zurich. At the heart of the new tool, it uses a nanoscale tip, 10,000 times smaller than an ant, to create patterns and structures as small as 15 nanometers. The photo shows a close-up of the core micro-electro-mechanical system of the tool, which controls the tip.
