The simulation displays a view of atoms and molecules much like those used by
chemists in the 1980s, but with a sharper 3-D image and a better way to move
them and to feel the forces they exert. Actually, the whole simulation setup is ...
is big because the smallest parts are the size of marbles, and the machinery
inside that makes it move and bend has many, many parts. Inside, another
mechanism is at work: The arm now ends in a hole, and you can see the old,
motions in the spring (usually optically), and the spring moves up and down
whenever the tip is dragged over an atom on the surface. The tip "feels" the
surface just like a fingertip in the simulated molecular world. The AFM was
invented by ...
