Pushing the potential of probe microscopy

Christian Wagner and co-workers at Forschungszentrum Jülich have developed an elegant and exciting way of mapping the electrostatic potential of single atoms and molecules with very high sensitivity. Their paper on this new approach, which they call scanning quantum dot microscopy, was published in Physical Review Letters yesterday. I was asked by the American Physical Society to write a Viewpoint article on Wagner et al.’s paper and jumped at the invitation because I found the work so fascinating and important. Here’s my take on what they’ve done: Pushing The Potential of Probe Microscopy
