the worlds tiniest advertisement attaining a precision that May one Day Lead to development of new materials and far faster computers it took 22 hours of moving atoms one by one to create the letters researcher Don Ald Eigler said the design about 660 billionths of an Inch Long is featured in a report by Eigler and Erhard Schweizer who did the work at ibis Almaden research Center in san Jose Calif the report is in today Issue of the British Jour Nal nature physicists called the work a significant step that Demon Strates that individual atoms can be arranged with High precision the implications Are really said Stuart Lind say of Arizona state University he called the work absolutely someday that ability May let researchers build vanishingly tiny electronic components allow ing computers far faster than today supercomputers scientists said atoms May also be assembled someday into mole Cules to create new substances and materials they said the atom hauling process was Akin to tugging Ping Pong balls Over the bumpy Bottom of an egg Carton the atoms were placed with such precision that scientists could choose an individual atom on the surface As the Point on which to put a second atom to build the design Eigler said in a Telephone interview the ism scientists arranged atoms of a heavy Gas called xenon on a surface made of Nickel they used a device called a scanning tunnelling Microscope which produces extremely de tailed images of surfaces it can sense atoms on a surface by passing the tip of a Needle Over it the tip holds a Magnet like attraction for atoms when the tip was brought close enough to a xenon atom it could pull the atom across the surface the Needle had to tug hard see Page 4 column 1 scientists at ibis Almaden research Center in san Jose created this
