IBN7 News:This is the first time when someone clicked an single atom's shadow - a miraclous task was going on over 5 yrs.
Very first image of atom's shadow
“We have attained the extreme limit of microscopy; you can't see anything smaller than an atom using visible light. We wanted to investigate how few atoms are required to cast a shadow and we proved it takes just one,” Kielpinski claimed, the journal Nature Communications published.
The only thing due to which made it possible is an extremely high-resolution microscopic lense, that can make the shadow sufficiently dark to observe. No other center on the planet has the efficacy for this kind of extreme optical imaging, as per the Griffith’s assertion.
Retaining an atom still sufficiently long to carry its picture, is not new concept; the atom is kept alone in free space by electrical forces inside a holding chamber.
