S677: Imaging Atoms in Rainstorm Spring 2021 (May. 15 - 16, 2021)
Have you ever wondered how you can image the atomic structure of materials? In this class you will learn how one basic concept of quantum mechanics allowed for the development of a state-of-the-art experimental technique, scanning tunneling microscopy, to do just this. Then we will explore how the microscope is used to give information about materials at the atomic scale.


S518: Imaging Atoms in Rainstorm Fall 2020 (Dec. 05 - 06, 2020)
Have you ever wondered how you can image the atomic structure of materials? In this class you will learn how one basic concept of quantum mechanics allowed for the development of a state-of-the-art experimental technique, scanning tunneling microscopy, to do just this. Then we will explore how the microscope is used to give information about materials at the atomic scale.
