STM imageIn this scanning tunneling microscope (STM) image, electron density waves are seen to be breaking around two atom-sized defects on the surface of a copper crystal. The resultant standing waves result from the interference of the electron waves scattering from the defects. Courtesy, Don Eigler, IBM.
