Set to a playful musical track, the movie represents a unique way to convey science outside the research community.
“Moving atoms is one thing; you can do that with the wave of your hand,” said Andreas Heinrich, principal investigator from IBM Research.
“Capturing, positioning and shaping atoms to create an original motion picture on the atomic level is a precise science and entirely novel.”
In order to make the movie, the atoms were moved with a scanning tunnelling microscope.
