Nanotechnology at IBM Research


Nanotechnology highlights

IBM marks three decades of nanotechnology leadership. Two milestone IBM inventions—the Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) in 1981 and the Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) in 1986—provided researchers around the world with the specialized tools they needed to explore the nano-cosm and manipulate materials at the atomic level for the first time.

Highlights spanning more thirty years of scientific discoveries and innovations in nanoscience and nanotechnology from IBM Research Labs are featured on the timeline below.
