One comment on “A Boy and His Atom

  1. Wow, you have an STM, or at least use of one, cool. I did think, when I watched the making of videos and they said carbon monoxide, that is a molecule, but I assume we can only see the carbon atom and the oxygen is bonding to the copper sheet behind it. You may know the answer to this, why can’t we see the atoms in the copper sheet? Is it due to an equivalent of a very small depth of field in optics?
