The Sharp End of Nanotechnology

We have known about the atomic nature of the structure of matter for over a century,however this microscopic world was always considered abstract and invisible, hidden from our direct view by the limitations on how closely we can look at any material that forms everyday reality. Over the past two decades, this divide has been dramatically removed with the development of a new class of microscopes that allow us to probe and even manipulate the surfaces of materials with unprecedented precision.
