Wired Magazine has a great gallery of wonderful nanoscale images, taken with a scanning tunneling microscope. According to the site, the microsocope is:
"...a 1986 invention that won its creators the Nobel Prize. STMs pass an electrical probe over a substance, allowing scientists to visualize regions of high electron density and infer the position of individual atoms and molecules."
Yes. Well. Enjoy!
