Making the molecular movie
There is a camera that has both sufficient shutter speed and sensitivity to capture atomic movies of structural dynamics. The machine built at the University of Toronto was the first to make "Molecular Movies". It uses an extremely "bright" source of electrons to ping off the atoms and report on their motions. This advance has opened up a new kind of microscope to reveal the atomic world to us in motion. R. J. Dwayne Miller, University of Hamburg, shows us several of these movies.
