FeSi2 surface showing lots of steps

Quantum corral

47 Fe atoms arranged in a circle on a Ni surface at 4K using a scaning tunelling microscope (STM ) from IBM Almaden Research Labs.  Other neat STM images can be seen at STM Image Gallery.

Si(111) (7x7) reconstruction

IBM fly-past

The IBM logo flypast movie that we saw in class can be viewed/downloaded from IBM logo as a .MPG file.  You need an MPEG viewer to see the movie.
