Film Made From Atoms: IBM Makes World's Smallest Movie "A Boy And His Atom"

Published on 30 Apr 2013

You're about to see the movie that holds the Guinness World Records™ record for the World's Smallest Stop-Motion Film . The ability to move single atoms — the smallest particles of any element in the universe — is crucial to IBM's research in the field of atomic memory. But even nanophysicists need to have a little fun. In that spirit, IBM researchers used a scanning tunneling microscope to move thousands of carbon monoxide molecules (two atoms stacked on top of each other), all in pursuit of making a movie so small it can be seen only when you magnify it 100 million times. A movie made with atoms. Learn more about atomic memory, data storage and big data at
