    IBM stakes claim to nano-scale printer
    Tiny printing from Big Blue
    Researchers
    from IBM and ETH Zurich have developed a method for placing minuscule
    particles on a precise location.The new technique delivers a printing
    resolution equivalent to 100,000 dots per inch (dpi). Current printers
    top out around 1,200-1,500 dpi.The discovery could eventually allow for
    printing technology that could be used to create nano-scale wires or
    ultra-small lenses for use in optical chips.

    Big Blue admitted
    that the technology is still years away from any commercial
    applications, but the company is hopeful that the breakthrough will
    help accelerate the development of nanotechnology.”This method opens up
    new ways to precisely and efficiently position various kinds of
    nanoparticles on different surfaces,” said IBM Zurich researcher Heiko
    Wolf.”[This is] a prerequisite for exploiting the unique properties of
    such nanoparticles and for making their use economically feasible.”As
    current methods of constructing chips approach their limits,
    researchers have looked for new methods to continue shrinking chip
    sizes. IBM’s latest discovery could help in that process.
