We etch a tiny portrait of Queen Elizabeth II onto a diamond - to celebrate her diamond jubilee (60 years on the throne).
The smallest portrait is just 46 microns high.
With thanks to Michael Fay and Christopher Parmenter at the University of Nottingham's Nottingham Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre.
