Looking at electrons without touching

Abstract:
Physicists in Canada have developed a new way to investigate single-electron effects in quantum structures without the need to attach leads to the system being studied. The method, dubbed electrostatic force spectroscopy, relies on an atomic force microscope and has a spatial resolution of 50 nanometres.
