Tiny motion detector carries huge promise
Think you can see something move a distance smaller than the width of an atom?
Sandia National Laboratories scientists can — with the naked eye.
A motion detector created at the labs emits a visible flash at movement on that scale. With the aid of computers, the device can even detect movement on a scale 10,000 times smaller than an atom, said Dustin Carr, the researcher who invented the technology.
