Self assembled Germanium 'pyramid' (base 10 nanometer x 10 nanometer) on Silicon. The nanoscale pyramid of germanium atoms is formed spontaneously atop a ground of silicon. Each small sphere represents an atom. It will help researchers develop new generations of tinier electronic devices that are governed by quantum phenomena.
