Do you know how what equipment and conditions it takes to spray on single layers of atoms?

If you have to ask you can't afford it. This is cutting edge (pun intended) stuff....

Course now, I wonder, if a more crude apparatus might work for building up knife edges. It wouldn't take atoms at a time to do what we need. But it might still be too expensive.

I guess it doesn't hurt to dream tho...
