Cardiff poem is too tiny to be seen
Researchers at Cardiff University have used some of the world's most advanced nanotechnology equipment to inscribe a microscopic poem that would fit many times onto the sharp tip of a needle.
The tiny engraving was achieved at the Centre's MicroBridge facility, which provides UK industry with the most advanced machinery in the world for working with materials on a nano scale.
The engraved poem was written by Kim Pham and follows the style of a 17-syllable Japanese haiku.
My poem is small,
Even nanoscopical -
Can't be read at all.
