Imago: On the Cutting Edge of Nanotech

Abstract:
Jack Uldrich: I just finished reading a wonderful article in Space Daily which discussed researchers ability to develop a new “high-security” steel that would be resistant to possible terrorist attacks.

The technology that is making this development possible is a new advanced microscope called the Local-Electrode Atom Probe (LEAP). This amazing piece of equipment can literally pluck atoms off a material’s surface one at a time and then, layer-by-layer; analyze the chemical composition of that material. Even more amazingly, it does this at a rate 720 times faster than today’s state-of-the-art SEMs and TEMs. (It can collect 72 million atoms an hour as opposed to 100,000 atoms).
