3-D Cmputer Model and Atomic Force Microscopy Image of the New Film Made by University of Tokyo (image) University of Tokyo Share Print E-Mail Caption Top surface view of 3-D computer model (left) and Atomic Force Microscopy image (right) of the new film made by University of Tokyo scientists. The well-organized structure of the molecules is visible in both the 3-D computer model and microscope image as a herringbone or cross-hair pattern. The color differences in the microscopy image are a result of the different lengths of the molecules' tails; the length differences cause the geometric frustration that prevents layers from stacking. pm = picometers, nm = nanometers.
