Nano-nose sniffs out smallest scents

Abstract:
Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Labs in Tennessee have claimed a new world record for weighing tiny amounts of stuff. Tiny gold-coated silicon bars two microns long and fifty nanometres thick were vibrated by heating them with a solid-state laser at around two million times a second, and variations in their resonant frequency measured.
