Description: This image shows a nanoscale conveyor belt, which Berkeley Lab scientists have transformed carbon nanotubes into, in a development that brings the promise of mass production to nanoscale devices. The conveyor belts are capable of ferrying atom-sized particles to microscopic worksites. Someday, nanoscale conveyor belts could expedite the atom-by-atom construction of the world’s smallest devices.
