An inner circle of six silicon atoms and an outer circle of 12 silicon atoms forming a lovely "Atomic Rose". Image taken by scanning tunnelling microscope at Bath by Duncan Lock.
Adrian Hooper kindly did his photographer bit yesterday and took some snaps of the group and the lab. Here they are. Be warned I have gone a wee bit OTT with some photo editing.
New liquid nitrogen vessels
Welcome to group TPV-200. May you work hard and keep the Q+ cold. Update: the vessel is full, and the Q+ is cold. Let's see if the microscope works on Monday. Update 2: The Q+ is at 77K.
