... Each gallium atom is tetrahedrally coordinated by 3 tellurium and one gallium atom ... The core consists of a cube of eight atoms, four gallium, and four tellurium atoms ... gallium has an attached t-butyl group and three adjacent tellurium atoms and each tellurium has three adjacent gallium atoms ...

... Azanes with more than three nitrogen atoms can be arranged in various different ways, forming structural isomers ... The simplest isomer of an azane is the one in which the nitrogen atoms are arranged in a single chain with no branches ...

... Antiprotonic helium atoms are under study by the ASACUSA experiment at CERN ... In these experiments, the atoms are first produced by stopping a beam of antiprotons in helium gas ... The atoms are then irradiated by powerful laser beams, which cause the antiprotons in them to resonate and jump from one atomic orbit to another ...
Famous quotes containing the word atoms:
“[Humanity] has unquestionably one really effective weaponlaughter. Power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecutionthese can lift at a colossal humbugpush it a littleweaken it a little, century by century; but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.”
—Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (18351910)
“Do but consider this small dust, here running in the glass,
By atoms moved.
Could you believe that this the body was
Of one that loved?
And in his mistress flame playing like a fly,
Turned to cinders by her eye?
Yes, and in death as life unblest,
To havet expressed,
Even ashes of lovers find no rest.”
—Ben Jonson (15721637)
“Ask me no more where Jove bestows,
When June is past, the fading rose;
For in your beautys orient deep
These flowers, as in their causes, sleep.
Ask me no more whither do stray
The golden atoms of the day;
For in pure love heaven did prepare
Those powders to enrich your hair.”
—Thomas Carew (15891639)
