Microscopy moves to the picoscale

Abstract:
Physicists in Germany have made an atomic force microscope capable of imaging features less than 100 picometres across. The new "higher-harmonic" force microscope uses a single carbon atom as a probe and has a resolution that is at least three times better than that of traditional scanning tunnelling microscopes.
