From buckyballs to memresistors to lipid membranes to flash memory, Nanoscale: Visualizing an Invisible World is dedicated to the world of crystalline structures that we cannot use our vision—even where augmented with the best optical microscopes—to see. These structures impact our lives and our interactions with our surroundings in ways we are scantly aware, and this book effectively reminds the reader that the nanoscale properties of these materials control their macroscopic influence on us.

In the introduction, the authors give a quick review of the technological and theoretical advances that have led to our present understanding of nanoscale crystal structure....
