Kirkland microscopes can examine matter one atom at a time
X-ray vision was state-of-the-art when Superman launched his career in the 1930s.
But if the superhero wants to keep pace with the modern world of nanotechnology, he should upgrade to electron vision, Ondrej Krivanek says.
Tapping the technology at the heart of the electron microscope would allow the Man of Steel to not only see through things, but also to peer into their very substance — all the way down to their atoms.
