A research group has developed the thinnest possible electrical wires, with a size of just three atoms wide using fragments of molecule-sized diamonds, the smallest diamonds we have.
Diamonds come into play to create ultra-thin electrical wires.
A team of scientists from the University of Cambridge has developed the world's smallest magnifying glass that can focus on light a billion more times, letting you see even single atoms.
This small microscope can help you see chemical bonds between atoms.
Three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry for designing machines that are thinner than a strand of hair.
A team of scientists at UCLA were recently able to map 3D versions of all the atoms within a structure. Until now, we did not have the precision to show every single atom. Knowing this will likely allow engineers and scientists to build stronger structures, including aircraft.
