Physics Lectures for the General MIT Community: g

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy: A Tool for Atomic Scale Measurement
Prof. Eric Hudson
Wed Jan 26, 01:30-02:30pm, 6-120

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Single session event

As technology drives electronics towards "nanoelectronics," where wires are a few atoms wide and transistors are sensitive to single electrons, physicists must have a tool to investigate the new phenomena that arise in this regime. The Scanning Tunneling Microscope is one such tool, and in this talk I will highlight its ability to image and move atoms, and discuss some results of my research on high temperature superconductors.
