2012-05-28 07:21:59

[ Watch the Video ] A collaboration of three groups is responsible for creating and imaging the smallest structure ever -- a billionth of a meter across and nearly 100,000 times thinner than a human hair. The structure, called olympicene, because of its five-ringed shape being similar to that of the Olympic symbol, was first synthesized by University of Warwick, UK researchers, who worked closely with IBM Research - Zurich to bring the molecule to life, employing a combination of...

Coming soon: Manufacturing with every atom in its proper place The long-held dream of creating atomically precise three-dimensional structures in a manufacturing environment is approaching reality, according to the top scientist at a company making tools aimed at that ambitious goal. John Randall, Vice President of Zyvex Labs in Richardson, Tex., says his researchers have demonstrated a process that uses a scanning tunneling microscope tip to remove protective surface hydrogen atoms from...

For their look into the nanoworld, the Jlich researchers used a scanning tunneling microscope. Its thin metal tip scans the specimen surface like the needle of a record player and registers the atomic irregularities and differences of approximately one nanometer (a billionth of a millimeter) with minuscule electric currents. However, even though the tip of the microscope only has the width of an atom, it has not been able so far to take a look inside molecules."In order to increase the...

Discovery supports development of nanoscale magnetic storage devices Though scientists argue that the emerging technology of spintronics may trump conventional electronics for building the next generation of faster, smaller, more efficient computers and high-tech devices, no one has actually seen the spin"”a quantum mechanical property of electrons"”in individual atoms until now. In a study published as an Advance Online Publication in the journal Nature Nanotechnology on Sunday,...
