"Atomic Hand" Enables Lightening Fast Molecular Control

The tip of an ultrafast scanning tunneling microscope (top-left) hovers over a molecular switch (bottom, connected red and black spheres). Ultrafast atomic forces (shock waves) induce vigorous motion of a select atom (red sphere) of the molecule to control its reactivity on ultrafast time scales.
