This scanning electron
microscope image shows an actuator that moves a probe tip up and down.
The probe tip is the small rectangle set on the near edge of the larger,
waffle-shaped rectangle. CMU researchers plan to use an array of 6,400
of these actuators and tips to read and write data in a storage device
built on a chip.
