Seeing single atoms in a TEM

Like Comment

Nature had on its cover yesterday a great story about transmission electron microscopy (TEM). No, really.

Jannik Meyer, now at Ulm University, and Alex Zettl, at Berkeley, have developed a technique, kind of by accident, to allow them to see single atoms of teeny elements, even hydrogen, in a standard TEM. Check out the paper, related news and views and online news piece.
