Hari Manoharan´s Nanotechnology Breakthrough

At Ground Zero for the Silicon Valley, Hari Manoharan, 34, is on to something extraordinary. The tall, curly-haired, handsome, professor of physics at Stanford University, is using the precise motions of the tip of a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM), as a tweezer to pick up atoms and rearrange them. He can demonstrate it by dragging a cobalt atom across the surface of copper atoms. The process results in a whining, creaking, clunking noise as the chemical bonds form and break.
