Israel’s Gift to Obama: Nano Chip of Declarations of Independence

JewishPress Logo

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will present visiting President Barack Obama a one-of-a kind replica of the Israeli and American Declarations of Independence etched on a tiny gold-coated silicon nano chip designed by Technion University’s Nanotechnology Institute researchers and scientists.

The two declarations are inscribed side by side on the chip, as area of 0.04mm by 0.00002mm, using a focused beam of gallium ions.

The chip is affixed to a Jerusalem stone dating to the Second Temple used to seal clay vessels. In the video below, Prof. Wayne Kaplan, Dean of Technion’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering, takes you into the Dual-Beam Focused Ion Beam Lab and explains how this was done. Dr. Tzipi Cohen-Hyams is seen working on the nano-chip.
