Microscope catches individual atoms

Friday February 25 by Eric ThelinMSNBC Science News
Using highly reflective mirrors, scientists said Thursday they had created a kind of microscope that can trap and observe a single atom at a time. The team, at the California Institute of Technology, said their atom cavity microscope takes them a step closer to quantum computers and communications. Such technologies would be infinitely faster and more efficient than present-day computing and information systems.
