Physicists image individual molecules by watching them absorb light
Physicists image individual molecules by watching them absorb light Molecules are extremely hard to see in visible light, especially without using fluorescence. Leiden physicists have now made their optical technique sensitive enough to image the molecules of their interest in all More info
