The occurrence of a fundamental length, a lower bound to any output of a position measurement, seems to be an attractive possibility in classical and quantum physics. In this regard, we investigate a simple model in the context of the classical Maxwell-Lorentz theory where a basic length can be identified. We then propose a possible experiment to indirectly detect the existence of this length.
