Electron beam microscope directly writes nanoscale features in liquid with metal ink

Scientists have harnessed a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) to directly write tiny patterns in metallic 'ink,' forming features in liquid that are finer than half the width of a human hair. The automated process is controlled by weaving a STEM instrument's electron beam through a liquid-filled cell to spur deposition of metal onto a silicon microchip.
