    Great puzzle Becky! I liked the clue for DANE
    9A DANELike Hamlet, for one; pretty great, in a way?
    and the ATOM
    1A ATOMDemocritus suggested that this tiny particle was "indivisible"
    /MESON
    4D MESONParticle that transmits the strong force within an 1A
    connection

      Nice clue for CREST
      6A CRESTApparently, it was originally named "Fluoristan," in a nod to its active ingredient (but that name almost sets one's teeth on edge)
      ! I always enjoy learning new things while I solve.
