Title: Nanotechnology--Basic;Atomic Switch Figure C
Description: Based on measurements of the noise made by the molecule at each pixel of a topographical image made with the STM, the researchers made a computer-generated spatial map of the atom switching speed and probability, showing that switching is most likely when the STM tip is positioned to the left of the cobalt atom (blue and white speckled area).
