What’s so special about this? Also, for fake bonus points, where’s the text from?

(And with this, we’re reset to our proper schedule. Carry on my wayward quizzers :p )

Answer:

Written using Dip Pen lithography on a really tiny surface. The text is from Feynman’s famous “There’s plenty of room at the bottom”.

    This image was written using Dip-Pen Nanolithography, and imaged using lateral force microscopy mode of an atomic force microscope.

    Done by the Mirkin Group at Northwestern U, of Feynman’s vocal nanotreatise “There’s Plenty of Room At The Bottom”.

    This image was written using Dip-Pen Nanolithography, and imaged using lateral force microscopy mode of an atomic force microscope.

    The text is from “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom” i guess..

    Part of classic talk – there’s plenty of room at the bottom – that Richard Feynman gave on December 29th 1959 at the annual meeting of the American Physical Society at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) was first published in the February 1960 issue of Caltech’s Engineering and Science,

    Specialty is that this particular example used Dip-Pen Lithography.

    And, as a minor self-compensation for yesterday’s idiotic blunder,

    Talk by Richard Feynman,” There’s plenty of room at the bottom”, at Caltech, is the material here.

    Text of the classic talk by Richard Feynman at Caltech in 1959 that arguably introduced nanotechnology. The image was written using Dip-pen nanlithography at the nanometer scale at Northwestern University.

    Text taken from “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom” – Physics lecture by Feynman – 1959 talk on top-down nanotechnology

    It was Feynman who considered the possibility of direct manipulation of individual atoms as a more powerful form of synthetic chemistry than those used at the time


  15. xtremevarun

    From Feynman’s lecture “There’s plenty of room at the bottom”..read atomic microscope methinks….for writing…some nanolithography machine prolly

    This is Feynman’s speech ‘There is plenty of room at the bottom’ written using a Scanning Tunneling Microscope. The STM has evolved into the Atomic Force Microscope that can nudge, pick-up and animate individual atoms, giving rise to dip pen nano-lithography.

    This image was written using Dip-Pen Nanolithography, and imaged using lateral force microscopy mode of an atomic force microscope, by the Mirkin Group, Northwestern University.

    The text is from “There’s Plenty of Room
    at the Bottom” By Professor Richard P. Feynman, December 29th, 1959.

    Because I don\’t understand the technospeak of molecular nanotechnology, I\’ll paste a description I found:
    *This image was written using Dip-Pen Nanolithography, and imaged using lateral force microscopy mode of an atomic force microscope.*
    It would appear to have been done by the Mirkin Group at Northwestern University

    The text is Feynmans 1960 lecture entitled, There\’s Room at the Bottom.

    Feynman’s famous talk on nanotechnology titled ‘There’s plenty of room at the bottom’ has been inscribed on a nano-scale. I quote http://www.nanotech-now.com/basics.htm – “This image was written using Dip-Pen Nanolithography, and imaged using lateral force microscopy mode of an atomic force microscope.”

    The photo shows an excerpt of Richard Feynman’s talk “There is plenty of room at bottom” delivered in 1959 written in miniature using dip-pen nanolithopgraphy and imaged using lateral force microscopy mode of an atomic force microscope.

    (surely you are joking mr feynman)


  22. This image was written using Dip-Pen Nanolithography, and imaged using lateral force microscopy mode of an atomic force microscope


  23. The Birth of Nanotechnology. The text is from his lecture “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom”.


  24. Parijat

    This text is from “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom”, a famous lecture given by Richard Feynman at an American Physical Society meeting at Caltech on December 29, 1959. Feynman offered two challenges at the meeting, held that year in Caltech, offering a $1000 prize to the first person to solve each of them. The first one required someone to build a working electric motor that would fit inside a cube 1/64 inches on each side. The second challenge was for anyone who could find a way to inscribe a book page on a surface area 25,000 times smaller than its standard print. The prizes were won by William McLellan and Tom Newman.


  25. Champakali

    This is Feynman’s talk on Nanotechnology, There’s plenty of room at the bottom.

    Is this text actually written on the head of a pin?


  26. Soda

    This is text from There’s Plenty of Room at the bottom..This i guess was inscribed onto the head of a pin that God(Feynman) was talking about.
