Landmarks Recreated in Miniature

Abstract:
Tiny replicas of two of the country’s biggest landmarks now count among the world’s smallest objects, scientists said today. Miniaturisation experts from Newcastle University have recreated the towering Angel of the North sculpture and the world-famous Tyne Bridge so they are smaller than a pinhead and invisible to the naked eye. The scientists from the university’s Inex arm (Innovation in Nanotechnology Exploitation) are looking at commercial development of their techniques in the emerging field of MEMS.
