NIST Helps Chip Industry Measure Features by Counting Atoms

Abstract:
The quest to develop the nanotechnology equivalent of rulers—length-measurement references based on the spacing of atoms in a perfectly ordered crystal—has inspired a burst of innovation at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Progress to date has yielded a novel device that can resolve distances smaller than the radius of an atom and a reliable method for writing 10-nanometer-sized features on silicon.
