Sorry, this is a total tangent, but a friend did some cool work with atomic force microscopy - molecules that looked just like DFT predicted - so I printed him up some of his data. It's fun visualizing actual data!
Oh, that is so cool! I was always amazed at the way AFM can give you a picture of an actual molecule...
The noisy one is so noisy because (technique introduced in this paper!) it's time-resolved: you can bang the molecule, then measure it a selected number of picoseconds later to see how it wobbles. Very cool stuff. He's now setting up his own lab in the US.
Oh wow, it gives vibrational data too? By physically inducing the vibrations? Very neat. Hmmm... I think a few people in my institute might work on something similar.
Boo to paywalls. I'll take a look when I'm next on campus!
