A ‘nano’ drum

RESEARCHERS in the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai, have demonstrated the ability to manipulate the vibrations of a drum of nanometre-scale thickness, which would be the world’s smallest and most versatile drum. This work, according to a TIFR press release, has implications in improving the sensitivity of small detectors of mass, very important in detecting the mass of small molecules like viruses. This also opens the door to probing exciting new aspects of fundamental physics.
