The First Image Ever of a Hydrogen Atom's Orbital Structure

The First Image Ever of a Hydrogen Atoms Orbital Structure What you’re looking at is the first direct observation of an atom’s electron orbital — an atoms actual wave function! To capture the image, researchers utilized a new quantum microscope — an incredible new device that literally allows scientists to gaze into the quantum realm.

The First Image Ever of a Hydrogen Atom's Orbital Structure

The First Image Ever of a Hydrogen Atom's Orbital Structure - What you’re looking at is the first direct observation of an atom’s electron orbital — an atom's actual wave function! To capture the image, researchers utilized a new quantum microscope — an incredible new device that literally allows scientists to gaze into the quantum realm.

The Super-Kamiokande detector in Japan, an underground tank that holds 50 million liters of water, captures neutrinos that emanate from a particle accelerator nearly 300 kilometers away. When a neutrino hits the detector, it can produce charged particles, whose high speed through the water emits a flash of light, triggering phototubes mounted in the walls of the Super-K tank. The experiment investigates muon neutrinos transforming into electron neutrinos.

The Wondrous Beauty Of Microscopic Plant Seeds

U.K. artist Rob Kesseler used an electron scanning microscope to capture this image of a seed from a thistle of the Centaurea genus.

For this multidisciplinary installation project infusing visual art with natural science, San Francisco-based artist Klari Reis used petri dishes and reflective epoxy polymer to capture electron microscopic images of the natural (and unnatural) cellular reactions that take place in nature.

One of the ten finalists in the 2012 New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography. This image, 'Another Day in the Life of Arabidopsis', shows a small, six-day-old seedling of Arabidopsis thaliana under a scanning electron microscope and captures the essence of seed germination, the tiny and delicate beginnings of a plant. The image has been artificially coloured to resemble the natural colours of the living seedling. Photo: Mark Talbot
