Ice transforms chipmaking

Abstract:
Harvard University scientists have taken ice sculpture to a new level -- that of molecules. The researchers showed that molecular-scale layers of ice could be made easily and cheaply and then etched with electron or ion beams.

The method promises to make it easier for researchers to make nanoscale machines, and could someday make for an inexpensive, environmentally-friendly way to make computer chips.
