STM tips: a demonstration of the 3D Molecular Simulator

This molecular dynamics simulation of two scan-tunneling-microscope (STM) tips made of silver atoms demonstrates MW's new 3D Simulator, which is currently under development. While it does not show a dramatical phenomenon, this simulation marks a milestone in MW's development, because it is the first model that was created from scratch using its 3D constructor.
