Purdue physicists hone rules for nanotech game
Nanotechnologists could have a firmer handle on the forces at play in their microscopic world thanks to recent physics research at Purdue University. "The Casimir force is not a new discovery, but its effects on machines are essentially negligible until you start building at the nanoscale," said Fischbach, a professor in Purdue's School of Science.
