IBM Photographs a molecule

The smallest things requires the biggest cameras, IBM research lab in Zürich have managed to photograph a carbon molecule called pentacene and it is a first time something so small has been depicted like this.

Pentacene is a five benzen ring molecule used in the making of some semi-conductors today, mainly OFET (organic field effect transistors) and similar devices.

The photograph was made possible because on the tip of the microscope a CO (carbon monoxide) molecule was used as a lens.

Incredible stuff.
