ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

By taking part in Feynman's flowers by crowdcarfting: You could help researchers at University College London (UCL) translate thousands of STM images. Based on the average of estimates by several volunteers like you, we hope to extract new information about the subtle ways that molecules interact with the surfaces they are stuck to, and how this affects their magnetic properties. Our data will be made openly available after we have analyzed it, and we will gladly acknowledge the volunteers in any publications that result from your efforts. We also hope you will enjoy this chance to explore a beautiful phenomenon from the nanoworld!
