Accelerating particles to high energies: A plasma tube to bring particles up to speed

Scientists have reached another milestone in developing a promising technology for accelerating particles to high energies in short distances: They created a tiny tube of hot, ionized gas, or plasma, in which the particles remain tightly focused as they fly through it. Ref. Source 9p.

Moving Atoms Why

No scientist here but the movement itself is how the universe is made up. Everything moves even if it looks like it isn't. Solid rock has atoms so close to each other that they vibrate while gas which is the extreme opposite of a solid has loose atoms flying around in a bigger loop because nothing is colliding with it.

Comments: The moving is called, "Quantum jitters" and the reason for the movement is called "Kinetic energy" which refers to the fact that everything in the universe moves!

Subatomic microscopy key to building new classes of materials

Researchers are pushing the limits of electron microscopy into the tens of picometer scale, a fraction of the size of a hydrogen atom. The ability to see at this subatomic level is crucial for designing new materials with unprecedented properties, such as materials that transition from metals to semiconductors or that exhibit superconductivity. The researchers' work describes the first atomic scale evidence for strain-induced ferroelectricity in a layered oxide. Ref. Source 5z.

Does the interpretation of this mean that they can now see the movement of atoms simply by looking through an electron microscope?

Why Atoms Moving - Page 3

Well seeing the real-time movement of individual atoms is still not within our grasp. We can image a material, do something to it and image it again in the exact same location to see how atoms moved, but those are two temporally separated events. Atoms move on the femtosecond time-scale (10-15 sec). Electron microscopes take images at 10 to 100 hertz (Or 10 to 100 microseconds (10-3 sec)). So we cannot see the actual motion of atoms. There is also a hard limit in physics of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle which states that we can only know the position and velocity of any object to within 1.6x10-35 (H-bar). This means if we know the position to within a fraction of a picometer (10-13 to 10-12), then we can only know the velocity to within 10-22 or so. Now obviously this would give us an idea of the motion, but we are pushing up against hard physical limits, even theory can't be more precise than Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. The likelihood of us building an instrument that can measure both so precisely is very low. But don't let that detract from this accomplishment. Knowing the position of atoms to within picometers is a huge step forward and will allow much more detailed knowledge of physical systems and how they behave.

So are you saying that it will never happen, that we can see atoms moving or just that we don't have the technology to see it happening in real time?
