IBM and National Geographic Kids Achieve a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(r) Title for the World's Smallest Magazine Cover
Date added: 2014-04-25
In Washington, D.C., Dr. Colin Rawlings, scientist, IBM Research, explains how IBM scientists and National Geographic Kids achieved a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(r) for the world's smallest magazine cover at USA Science and Engineering Festival on Friday, April 25, 2014. At 11 x 14 micrometers, 2,000 of the magazine covers could fit on a grain of salt. IBM researchers developed the technology to help scientists and engineers prototype a new generation of technologies, from energy efficient transistors for computers to tiny structures to microscopic security tags to prevent the forgery of documents.

Optical image of a typical ionic liquid (IL) gated device with a droplet of IL on top of the gate electrode and the oxide channel. The gold squares are pads used to make contact to the device via wire-bonding. On right is the magnified image of the device showing the channel (brownish yellow) and the gold electrical contacts (bright yellow). The contacts on the right and left of the channel are the source and drain contacts. The four other contact are used for 4-wire resistance & Hall measurements. (Credit: IBM)
IBM carbon nanotubes in solution

IBM researcher Hongsik Park observes different solutions of carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes, borne out of chemistry, have largely been laboratory curiosities as far as microelectronic applications are concerned. Carbon nanotubes naturally come as a mix of metallic and semiconducting species and need to be placed perfectly on the wafer surface to make electronic circuits. For device operation, only the semiconducting kind of tubes is useful which requires essentially complete removal of the metallic ones to prevent errors in circuits. (Credit: IBM)
