Microscopic image of Queen created by Nottingham scientists: A microscopic portrait of the Queen has been created by scientists at the University of Nottingham to mark the Diamond Jubilee

Abstract:
The engraving of the Queen, which measures just 46 by 32 microns, was created by Prof Martyn Poliakoff, Dr Michael Fay and Dr Christopher Parmenter from the university's Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre using a beam of charged gallium ions to engrave it on to the diamond.

Dr Fay said: "We basically blasted bits of the diamond out by firing heavy bits of atoms at the carbon of the diamond.

"We can do this very accurately and produce a very small image."

Prof Poliakoff, who presents the video, said: "It looks very like the Queen and from a scientific point of view, it looks very like the image that we used to make it.
