STM turns atoms into ions

Abstract:
Researchers at IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, Switzerland, and Chalmers/Göteborg University in Sweden have used a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) to add and remove single electrons from individual gold adatoms. The technique could ultimately lead to memory devices that store each bit on just one atom.
