Central to many fundamental research and engineering challenges of our time is the ability to understand, modify and control systems in a variety of environments on ultrasmall length scales and - in some cases - fast time scales. Success in these efforts hinges on the ability to image not only structure in nanoscale systems, but also the electronic, magnetic, optical and chemical properties and behavior associated with this structure. The APS, CNM and EMC possess a diverse and complementary array of imaging and spectroscopy microscopy platforms to push this frontier of nanoscale investigation. Going forward, it will become more important to establish multimodal imaging capabilities focusing on new techniques and the use of novel tool combinations to address the next generation of research challenges.
