Desktop printing at the nano level Currently, most nanofabrication is done in multibillion-dollar centralized foundries. Now a desktop nanofabrication tool slightly larger than a printer is said to allow fabrication of high-quality materials and devices, such as processing semiconductors over large areas. Developed by researchers at Northwestern University (Evanston, Ill.), the apparatus consists of easily…
