Physicists Construct ‘Swiss Cross’ with 20 Single Atoms

Physicists Construct ‘Swiss Cross’ with 20 Single Atoms

The manipulation of atoms has reached a new level: Together with teams from Finland and Japan, physicists from the University of Basel were able to place 20 single atoms on a fully insulated surface at room temperature to form the smallest "Swiss cross", thus taking a big step towards next generation atomic-scale storage devices. The academic journal Nature Communications has published their results. [More]
