Soldering iron added to nano-toolkit

Abstract:
An atomic-scale conveyor belt may also be the smallest soldering iron ever created. The new device, which ferries molten metal, is made from carbon nanotubes just 20 millionths of a millimetre in diameter. The discovery could pave the way for nano-machines that are pieced together from smaller components, rather than emerging from chemical reactions.
