Sinking gold atoms filmed with real time nano-imaging

Abstract:
Recent rapid advances in nanotechnology have allowed scientists, for the first time, to film gold atoms sinking into a surface in real time.

Researchers at Kavli Institute of Nanoscience, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, used a High Resolution Electron Microscope (HREM) to film a small group of gold atoms on a gold surface.

This was the first time the atom-sinking phenomenon - called collective transport - had been observed in real time, according to Professor Henny Zandbergen. The results were then validated and certified in collaboration with Princeton University, US.
