Submission + - A Snapshot of the Inside of an Atom->

sciencehabit writes: Physicists have, for the first time, been able to image the quantum workings of electrons in hydrogen atoms, an advance that could open the door to a deeper understanding of the quantum world. There may be practical applications in the future—a commentary accompanying the paper suggests that the method could aid in the development of technologies such as molecular wires, atom-thick conductors that could help shrink electronic devices—but that their result concerns "extremely fundamental" physics that might be just as valuable for developing quantum intuition in the next generation of physicists.
