"The manipulation of molecules is an active area of research with applications in chemistry, biology, physics, engineering, and polymer science. This book provides a comprehensive review of single molecule manipulation with atomic force microscopy (AFM). The text demonstrates that AFMs are capable of meeting the three main challenges in molecular manufacturing: manipulating and positioning each atom or molecule in the right place, making the atom or molecule form certain bonds, and achieving high-throughput fabrication. New and experienced researchers will find a wealth of information in this informative volume which demonstrates the potential of AFMs beyond imaging"–
"Scientists have long dreamed of working with single atoms and molecules. In 1952, Erwin Schrd̲inger wrote that we never experiment with just one electron or atom or molecule. With the invention of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) in the early 1980s, that dream has become a reality. STM was capable of "seeing" atoms and molecules and, furthermore, of manipulating them individually, as demonstrated a few years later. Scientists can now play with single atoms, single molecules, and even single bonds"– Read more…
