This spectacularly illustrated book celebrates the structural beauty of everyday materials and the space-age technologies used to probe their appearance. It introduces the reader to the various instruments and their uses: scanning electron, ion, and tunnelling microscopes, acoustic microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. The book describes how images are processed and analysed, and how modern materials science is based on these techniques and their ability to "see" materials at the atomic level. The book includes hundreds of illustrations and colour plates, making it a pleasure to the more
