Close up on the molecule of Fullerene C60, an allotropic form of Carbonium with 60 atoms. Visible the isosurfaces of ground state electron density. Discovered in 1990, was the first used after 1993 to test Decoherence in the mesoscopic scale of dimensions.
The Van der Waals diameter of the molecule C60, accounting also for the thickness of the electronic clouds around nuclei, is 1 nm
Today is known that all mesoscopic dimension objects show quantum and not classical behaviour.
