The nanotechnology experts at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa say the book was etched on a surface that measures less than 0.5 square millimetres. They chose the Jewish Bible to highlight how vast quantities of information can be stored on minute amounts of space.
"It took us about an hour to etch the 300,000 words of the Bible onto a tiny silicon surface," said Ohad Zohar, the university's scientific adviser for educational programs.
The Technion's microscopic Bible was created by blasting tiny particles called gallium ions at an object that then rebounded, causing an etching affect.
