IBM images molecular bonds.

PORTLAND, Ore. – IBM researchers who won the Nobel Prize for imaging individual atoms have gone a step further by imaging individual bonds between atoms. IBM Fellows Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer, who shared the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physics with German physicist Ernst Ruska, demonstrated the technique for the first time as part of their work at IBM Research in Zurich, Switzerland. IBM said the research will aid in the development of new organic materials for solar cells, OLEDs) and graphene semiconductors. IBM is also using the technique to help unravel the structure of unknown carbon compounds. "IBM now for the first time can differentiate individual bonds in molecules," said IBM scientist Leo Gross. "Brighter bonds are shorter and have higher bond order. We can also see that bonds appear at different lengths and can differentiate which are longer and which are shorter i...
