At Brookhaven National Laboratory, scientists have developed a custom-built machine that can grow special lenses, one atomic layer at a time. The machine is as long as an entire room, and scientists use a reprogrammed Xbox controller to direct a transport car through the vacuum-sealed chamber (pictured). The transport car collects plasma-borne particles that form the lenses that will eventually be used to focus high-intensity x-ray beams to reveal the details of nano material structures. <a href="http://www.bnl.gov/ps/news/news.php?a=23511" target="_blank">Learn more about the deposition chamber</a>. | Photo courtesy of Brookhaven National Laboratory.
