A new technique developed at Argonne, called Atom Trap Trace Analysis, or ATTA, is an ultrasensitive way to detect single atoms in a large sample. The technique can help date older samples much more effectively than carbon-14 dating. Chun-Yen Chen aligns the atom trap's optics. Argonne National Laboratory photo.
