Interesting Video of Carbon Atoms from IBM

Below is a video and short story from the BBC about the use of a tunneling electron microscope to visualize individual atoms of carbon on a copper substrate. A key note that I took away from this is that with this technology they are able to ovserve the bonds of molecules, which over time could have profound effects on Mass Spectrometry and our understaning of fragmentation pathways. This would help in constructing databases of molecular properties and predictive MSn methods.

As much fun as TF 3.0 has been to introduce to you all. I’m taking alittle breather and getting material ready for the next BIG release at ASMS.

Soon as we get clearance to share some info to the world There will be new videos daily.

Plus an ebook called “The Guru’s Guide to TraceFinder”, available as a page on th blog, or as an iBook for iPhone/iPad and an EPUB format for Kindle and Android. This will be a pocket guide for those times you don’t have access to the blog.
