Tool Created by IBM Can Look Inside an Atom

Scientists at IBM’s Almaden Research Center in California say they have created a microscope that not only looks at a cluster of atoms, but can also look inside them. The next steps for IBM’s research will be to fine tune the tool so that they can look at the 3D structure of atoms. The researchers believe this new microscope would expand the possibilities that nanotechnology can bring to the medical and technology research communities, such as creating a smaller and faster chip.
