The Planck constant exists, but it is not a length.

I know, but if I'm not mistaken the Planck constant tells you the shortest length you can possibly measure based on the frequency you are using to make the measurement. Is that correct?

Wave lengths are not the shortest things you can possibly think of

I don't understand. If everything in the physical universe is made of particles that behave like waves, there can't be anything smaller than waves.

By the way, since you are a physicist and knows this better than I, do particles have size?
