Love it. DARPA (my tax money) funded this research, then Cheng gets hired in Shanghai China under the guise of it being GE. What other tech knowledge did we transfer to her so she could help make the nukes that will descend upon us one day? I sure hope somebody had a Commerce Department license for exporting this advanced (that's the second letter in DARPA in case nobody noticed) technology as well. DARPA funded research should be done by US citizens only, not exporting even this kind of work to China.

Immersion lithography is just one possible application of RPI's liquid piston, which could also be used to dispense drugs from medical implants and many other applications in industrial imaging as well.

This article sounds like scientific fiction :). Could have never imagined something like this will be used in lithography. One thing is for sure innovation never stops. Kudos to RPI.
