Cover Picture: The Evolution of Dip-Pen Nanolithography (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 1/2004)

43_01/2004Dip-Pen Nanolithography makes possible rapid patterning of surfaces on the nanometer scale. The cover picture clearly shows the principles of this technique: the deposition of dye molecules from an atomic force microscopy tip onto a substrate. Feymans 1960 dictum on miniturization, shown in nanometer-sized type in the background, is proving to be once again applicable. C. A. Mirkin et al. summarize in their Review on page 30 ff. the current status of dip-pen lithography and predict possible future developments.
