Cornell to present nanofabricated etching

In a salute to nanotechnology, Cornell University researchers have etched the world's smallest, full-color American flag on a silicon chip. The flag is part of an elaborate nanofabrication that includes six full-color flags and 15 White Houses, all etched on the chip. The size of a postage stamp, the chip has been placed in a Lucite paperweight that will be presented to the White House on Tuesday, March 30, in Washington, D.C., by Joshua Wolfe, a 1999 Cornell graduate and managing partner of Lux Capital, a New York City venture capital firm specializing in nanotechnology.
