Video: Scanning tunneling microscope gets upgrade that could enable atomic-scale fabrication

By April Gocha / March 7, 2018

In an effort to improve the scanning tunneling microscope, researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas have pinpointed the problem that allows the microscope’s probe tip to crash into the sample it’s scanning and have devised a way to prevent it from happening.
