This question already has an answer here:
I have seen this photo in a lot of articles which is described as picture taken of a single atom in an ion traphere's the link to one of them. I find this very fascinating, but i still can't understand how he achieved this? I mean i don't understand how was he able to isolate a single strontium ion and then how did he capture the picture? I know there's a description available in the article too but its not that clear to me so i was wondering if someone can explain it in detail?
