MIT - building a better ruler

Abstract:
An MIT device that makes the world’s most precise rulers - with 'ticks' only a few hundred billionths of a meter apart - could impact fields from the manufacture of computer chips to space physics. Mark L. Schattenburg, leader of the team and director of MIT’s Space Nanotechnology Laboratory in the Center for Space Research, says he began the Nanoruler project because he wanted to create a better ruler for the semiconductor industry.
