Scanning tunneling microscopy

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy


Applications of diffraction and interference of light

Past

  • Gave scientists the ability to explore and manipulate solid surfaces on the size scale of atoms.

  • Helped discover fullerenes- spherical carbon molecules.


Applications of diffraction and interference of light

Present

Present

  • Detects the flow of electrons

  • industrial and fundamental research to obtain atomic-scale images of metal surfaces


Applications of diffraction and interference of light

Future

Future

  • To allow people to bring a "specimen" to a scanned probe microscope lab, put on a head-set designed for virtual reality, and stand among friends on a landscape of molecules resting on the specimen's surface. Every few seconds, the surface will ripple a bit, as the scanning probe tip passes by.


Holograms

Holograms


Applications of diffraction and interference of light

  • Holography involves two basic steps: (1) creating a hologram and (2) illuminating the hologram to display the image.

Spectroscopy

Spectroscopy


Applications of diffraction and interference of light

  • Began work with Sir Isaac Newton(late 1600’s)


Applications of diffraction and interference of light

Past

  • Used to determine what chemical elements are in a star

  • Used to study radio waves


Present2

Present

  • Reveal the speed and direction of stars

  • Used to learn more about a material’s composition or structure

  • Used to obtain images of tissues inside a body


Future2

Future

  • detection in clinical chemistry

  • metabolic studies and continuous monitoring

  • detection of lower concentrations of biological compounds


Astronomy

Astronomy


Applications of diffraction and interference of light

  • Astronomers observe the sky with telescopes of different kinds that gather not only visible light but also invisible forms of energy, such as radio waves.


Applications of diffraction and interference of light

Past

  • Used in telescopes to detect visible light and other forms of radiation emitted from celestial objects

  • Used to tell how dense an object (such as the Moon) is


Present3

Present

  • Radio astronomy

  • Telescopes- produces “pictures” of astronomical objects

  • Used to reveal the speed and direction of a star


Future3

Future

  • Improve radio astronomy

  • Improve modern astronomical observation

  • Predict the future structure of the universe
