Enabling Technologies

Yet another sub-wavelength technology has been discovered, according to SpaceDaily: "Think of a microscopic milling machine, capable of cutting just about any material with better-than-laser precision, in 3-D -- and at the nanometer scale." This one is really powerful: it removes 20-nm chunks of material with a laser. The fact that it can even work in 3D, building tunnels, could make it a significant enabling technology for molecular manufacturing.
