"The ultimate memory chips of the future will encode bits on
individual atoms, a capability recently demonstrated for iron atoms
by IBM's Almaden Research Center in San Jose, Calif., which
unveiled a new pulsed technique for scanning tunneling microscopes
"Pulsed-STMs yield nanosecond time-resolution, a requirement for
designing the atomic-scale memory chips, solar panels and quantum
computers of the future.
""My hope is that we can spawn a great following doing
nanosecond time resolution and atomic-scale spatial resolution with
their STMs," said Andreas Heinrich, a physicist in the IBM's
