BM's Atomic Corrals Show Nanotechnology at its Finest
While experimenting with materials that might make up future computer chips and storage components, IBM scientists built beautiful structures out of individual atoms using a specialized microscope whose invention won two IBMers a Nobel Prize in 1986.
Two of the images created using IBM's low temperature Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) are featured in The Art of Invention, an exhibit co-created by The National Inventors Hall of Fame Foundation (NIHFF) and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the USPTO Museum in Alexandria, VA. The exhibit opens today, highlighting more than 70 works of art that have emerged from inventions, patents and trademarks, and will be on view for one year.
