Instrument Of The Week
The Nano Harp
What is the smallest musical instrument?
The smallest instrument ever created had to be made in a science lab it’s so miniscule. It’s called the nano harp. It’s made out of a single piece of silicon and is around 140 atoms thick.
The nanoharp is carved out of a single crystal of silicon using advanced versions of the same methods used to build tiny electronic circuits: electron beam lithography and “released silicon” technology, which refers to nanostructures that have been undercut to be freely suspended in space.
It consists of two endpieces, one square and one triangular, with several “strings” of varying lengths stretching between them. The strings are actually silicon rods 50 nm (150 atoms) in diameter, ranging from 1000 to 8000 nm in length, and the entire device is about the size of a single red blood cell.
