Smallest Snowman In The World!



This snowman is not like any snowman you built on your backyard, this snowman is smaller than bed bugs... with 10 µm across in width only! Or if you are not good with math, red blood cells are approximately 8 µm in diameter.

"The snowman was made from two tin beads used to calibrate electron microscope astigmatism. The eyes and smile were milled using a focused ion beam, and the nose, which is under 1 µm wide (or 0.001 mm), is ion beam deposited platinum.source"

It is "hand built" by using a nanomanipulation system, then put together pieces by pieces by using platinum deposition. That is really some awesome work done in a atomic level. Now the bed bugs can also celebrate a white Christmas!
