This development--made possible with a low-temperature scanning tunneling microscope at Tufts, one of only about 100 in the US--may be the first step toward a new class of devices that could be used in applications ranging from medicine to engineering.
When a molecule was centered on a tiny bump, a nudge with the scanning tunneling microscope sent the legs of the molecule gently rotating, while the center stayed stationary.
Most recently, he has used scanning tunneling microscopes to characterize the reactions of individual molecules and thus fabricate molecular structures that are less than a thousandth the width of a human hair.
Minus K Technology, a leading manufacturer of vibration isolation products, announces that Minus K has been selected by the Manoharan Nanoscale Facility at Stanford University to provide critical vibration isolation for Stanford's Scanning Tunneling Microscopes (STMs).
