944 Notes

Looking down the tunnel of a custom-built lens deposition chamber, the birthplace of nanoscale lenses that will focus the electron beam at the National Synchrotron Light Source II.
Remember the video we posted about one of Brookhaven’s scientists using an Xbox controller to operate a machine? This is the inside of that machine. And down near that inviting, blue light, nanoscale lenses like these are grown atomic layer by atomic layer. How else are you going to focus x-rays to within just one billionth of a meter?
You’re gonna wanna click through and view this as a larger image. Trust us.
