Netanyahu’s tiny gift to Obama: A marvel of Israeli nanotech: Prime minister to present the US president with a minuscule version of both countries’ declarations of independence

Abstract:
n deference to the ancient custom of world leaders exchanging tchotchkes, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will bestow upon US President Barack Obama, when he arrives on Wednesday for a three-day visit, a gift — but it's a really small one.

Obama is to receive a gold-coated silicon chip etched with the declarations of independence of Israel and the United States. The etching, 20 nanometers (0.00002 mm) deep, was done on a 0.04 square millimeter portion of the chip. The chip was affixed to a Jerusalem stone dating to the Second Temple Period (1st century BCE to 1st century CE), of the kind used to seal clay vessels.

Naturally, an electron microscope will be on hand when Netanyahu presents the stone and chip, so that Obama can look his gift horse in the mouth.
