35 little atoms, all in a line

On April 5, 1990 two scientists at IBMís Almaden Research Centre in San Jose, California, reported that they had learned how to position individual atoms on a surface and had used the technique to build structures one atom at a time. This achievement creates the potential for many future applications. Among the possibilities are building custom-made molecules atom-by-atom, altering individual molecules, making ultra-small electrical circuits far smaller than is possible today.
