Physicist achieves measurement milestone down to yoctonewton level

from Nanowerk

University of Sydney physicist Michael Biercuk has made the most sensitive measurement of force to date, down to the yoctonewton level, one septillionth (10-24) of a newton. In collaboration with the Ion Storage Group at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology, Biercuk demonstrated it is possible to use trapped atomic ions as extremely sensitive detectors of applied forces and electromagnetic fields. The discovery provides an opportunity to address new challenges in materials science, nanotechnology and industrial sensing. more
