    IBM's 25 Years of Nanotech Leadership

    Date added: 30 Aug 2007

    IBM's Scanning Tunneling Microscope in 1981 revealed for the first time the reconstruction of silicon atoms at the surface, here in an image enhanced by computer processing. Some 25 years later, IBM scientists continue to break new ground with scientific milestones in atomic scale research that could be the building blocks of ultra-tiny, nanoscale structures to transform computing and to create devices nobody has even imagined yet.
