Chris Phoenix: Nanoscale tools are getting more and more functional and general-purpose. Researchers at Northwestern University have just accomplished the following:
- Designed a tiny sensitive system for applying and sensing force.
- Had samples welded to the device using a new and very powerful nanoscale manufacturing system.
- Put the device in a tunneling electron microscope (TEM), and watched the tube while they pulled it apart.
This is really impressive stuff. There are apparently three different systems involved: the sensor, the manufacturing system, and the final sensing configuration.
