Nernst effect molecular printing press

Nernst effect molecular printing press A patent shows that direct nanoprinting is possible This idea uses EM to Keep the printing plate rigid to print on (doped) graphene
  [vote for,

Wikipedia says of the Nernst effect phenomenon observed when a sample allowing electrical conduction is subjected to a magnetic field and a temperature gradient normal to each other. An electric field will be induced normal to both

I translate that as you can use an electric field to create cool, that is less moving, atoms on a plane at a particular orientation to an electric field

Thus visualize the flat hyperordered graphene surface at the picture http://i42.tinypic.com/3vsyu.jpg

The Nernst effect says that on the hyperordered cleavage plane it should be possible to make this more rigid with EM cooling

The Nernst effect varies with atomic composition as well as structure Thus I think there is a goop possibly even just a differently doped hyperordered graphene that a rigidified graphene can make an impression on

That creates a nernst effect molecular printing press

Technology: you use an AFM on Nernst effect adjustable graphene to draw what you'd like

Then you use the nernst effect to rigidify the graphene

Then you press the Graphene onto the impressable hyperordered doped graphene

This creates a nanoprinter from an AFM plus an anisotropic Nernst field plus two materials of different reaction to the Nernst effect

There are less than seven nanoprinting patents Thus It appears that direct press printing at nanosize is possible

The reason it is better than photolithography is the absence of etching You can use an AFM plus a motion device to make the plate, then a motion device to move the plate, then a Nernst device to rigidify the plate while it prints on a piece of graphene

This is just a little like PCR as there is an opportunity to cycle the printheads as either firm or pressable while making more of them

Superconducting Anti-Gravity Spaceship Patent http://news.nationa...11_junk_patent.html
Bad science gets patented every day, or at least sometimes [sninctown, Jun 06 2009]

(?) jupiterscope a vinyl diffraction grating that makes greasy glass also become a diffraction grating http://images.searc...-106&ei=utf-8&x=wrt

YouTube: chocolate diffraction grating videos https://www.youtube...diffraction+grating
Replacement for the above jupiterscope link that gives no relevant results (anymore?). Shows that you can use an existing diffraction grating to cast another one out of a soft material. The Tech Ingredients video (first result) is pretty good [notexactly, Jun 14 2019]


       // A patent shows that direct nanoprinting is possible// No... there are patents for many impossible things. A patent just means something is probably original. Google "perpetual motion machine patent" for examples.

       //The reason it is better than lithography is the absence of etching// Lithography does not involve any etching.

       I modified that as better than photolithography   

       spontaneous nanoprinting: a person can press a vinyl diffraction grating known as a jupiterscope grating on to greasy glass to make another diffraction grating Thus a slightly more rigid vinyl polymer can pattern a semifluid lipid to have lasting features at ummm diffraction grating nanowidths   

       graphene is much more rigid than lipids or vinyl so it might be pretty functional

       //The reason it is better than photolithography is the absence of etching// photolithography does not involve any etching of the actual metal surface either, only of the applied photosensitive coatings
