Musical Training Helps Scientist Hear Atoms' Movement

Abstract:
In honor of Nano Days this week, we're featuring one of the leading researchers studying the nanoscale world. With his colleagues at Stanford University, Hari Manoharan recently created the world's smallest letters - an S and a U, for Stanford University - each only one third of one billionth of a meter across and crafted from a flow of electrons on a copper surface. The feat was critical to prove that you can store more than one bit of information in an atom, as the new study showed that a single electron, a subatomic component of an atom, can store 35 bits of information. The results, along with video, can be seen in a recent NSF press release. Manoharan answers the ScienceLives 10 questions below.
