If you're okay with .5px, you can just write .5px. That's not 1 device pixel, tho, which is Florian's point - 1 device pixel might be 1px, or .5px, or .33px (or, since most phones resolutions are actually *not* a clean multiple, something like .48px).

It's very rare for someone to *actually* want a device pixel; they typically just want "a hairline-thin line, but rounded to the nearest device pixel", so yeah, something like `dp-round(.5px)`, as Florian suggests, would do the job without exposing the footgun of actual device pixels.
