147 The Worlds Smallest Periodic Table Engraved On a Single Human Hair

Experts used a complex ion beam writer & an electron microscope to engrave the symbol of all 118 elements into the hair taken from the Green Chemistry expert Professor Martyn Poliakoff’s head.

Professor Poliakoff said: “Although the application was light-hearted I felt that it enabled us to show people how such nano-writing is done. Our microscopist, Dr Mike Fay, made the whole operation seem so simple and really demystified it in a most appealing way.”
