Tiny, on a grand scale
It was one of those eureka! moments that researchers live for. Dawn Bonnell was riding Amtrak from Philly to Boston when it hit her - a way to build the gadgets of the future. If it worked, engineers could pick and choose from the smallest parts imaginable - atoms, molecules and other minuscule structures - and use them to make tiny new devices.
