    Can any electrical engineers or electrical engineering students tell me how feasible this looks? From my point of view being in physics - looks like it could be done.

    My best friend told me his son, who is 7, was interested in atoms and he wanted him to build an electron microscope for him. I told my friend - hey, electron micrscope, no way, but scanning tunneling microscopes are actually quite simple devices. I joked we could find DIY plans for one on the internet - then my joke became reality.

    Of course, atoms aren't mentioned in the Bible, so they don't exist.

    Spectrometer + helium ion microscope = very high resolution optical device...

    High-Resolution Microscope Brings Tiny Worlds Closer to Researchers
    October 30, 2015: Modern microelectronic devices contain billions of components crammed into thumbnail-size flakes. The chemical industry uses nanoparticles to make better cleaning products, while pharmaceutical companies use them for delivery of medicines straight into human cells.
