World’s tiniest art

This image from IBM shows an atomic-sized image resulting from scientific work at IBM’s labs. Made of 48 iron atoms using IBM’s low temperature Scanning Tunneling Microscope, this tiny work of art will be featured in an exhibition in the US titled ‘The Art of Invention’.

While experimenting with materials that might make up future computer chips and storage components, IBM scientists built images with individual atoms such as this stadium-shaped ‘Quantum Corral’
