Exploring nanoscale physics

  • 00:58:16

Description

In the past decade there have been tremendous advances in our ability to manipulate and rapidly image matter at the atomic scale. I will discuss novel mechanisms for transporting solid matter through seemingly impermeable constrictions, creating operational molecular-scale systems such as radio receivers, weighing single atoms with a mechanical balance, watching chemical reactions in near-real-time with atomic resolution, listening to bats, and manipulating so-called massless Dirac fermions that live in a two-dimensional world. Many of the experiments rely on ultra-high-resolution transmission electron microscopes and integral nanomanipulators.
