DARPA plays with atoms

DARPA is rearranging atoms to produce better materials.The goal of the Atoms to Product (A2P) project is to assemble nanometer-scale pieces into useful materials. DARPA is conducting the work because many materials have unique and useful behaviors at the nanoscale, which they lose when manufactured at larger dimensions, according to the agency. Those behaviors include quantized current-voltage behavior, melting at dramatically lower temperatures…
