This resolution in the image of an atom is so tight that the only blur left is the thermal tremor of the atom itself.

A Cornell University team led by Engineering Professor David Muller has surpassed its own previous record from 2018, presenting the sharpest image of an atom . With an Electron Microscope Pixel Array Detector (EMPAD) coupled with sophisticated 3D reconstruction algorithms, a regime has been reached that is effectively going to be a maximum limit for … Read more

This new technology for storing information is the smallest in the world with a thickness of only two atoms

In the heart of a computer, for example, is a tiny crystalline device designed to switch between two states that indicate different answers: ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ ‘up’ or ‘down’, etc. The practical challenge is to find a mechanism that allows switching in a small, fast and inexpensive device . One way forward could be this … Read more
