PSi™ PSI 1℠ Technology Featured in Physical Status Solidi RRL
An article written by the three University at Buffalo scientists who invented Precision Scientific Instrument’s (PSI) PSI 1℠ technology was featured as a cover story in the publication Physica Status Solidi RRL. Strength of Metals at the Fermi Length Scale, published by Dr. Jason N. Armstrong, Dr. Susan Z. Hua and Dr. Harsh Deep Chopra from PSI’s Scientific Team, revealed that when deforming gold and silver samples as small as a single-atom bridge, the strength of defect-free metals approaches ideal values, with yield stresses that are over 10,000 times higher than in bulk crystals.
The breakthrough research was performed using PSi’s patent pending PSi1™ technology that reliably measures the physical properties of sub-nano materials.

PSI PSI 1℠ Research Published in American Physical Society’s Physical Review B
Dr. Jason N. Armstrong, Dr. Susan Z. Hua and Dr. Harsh Deep Chopra of Precision Scientific Instruments (PSI) have published results of their breakthrough research on the characteristics of gold at an atomic level in the publication Physical Review B. Drawing from their research first published in their paper Mechanics of Quantum and Sharvin Conductors, the work revealed that a miniature bridge consisting of a single gold atom has twice the strength of bulk gold. This research was supported by the American Physical Societ in APS Physics. Read story Here
The research has important implications in the new manufacturing environment that necessitates materials for high technology products continue to become smaller, lighter and less expensive to produce.
The breakthrough study was performed using PSI’s patented technology that reliably images sub-atomic (nano) materials. PSI’s proprietary measurement technology provides researchers with the ability to unlock the commercial potential of the next generation of materials in order to miniaturize and revolutionize high-technology products.
