Smallest lattice structure worldwide

Scientists have now presented the smallest human-made lattice structure. Its struts and braces are made of glassy carbon. They are smaller than comparable metamaterials by a factor of five. The small dimension results in so far unreached ratios of strength to density. Applications as electrodes, filters or optical components might be possible.
