Focus on Microscopes
Nature has five articles focusing (ha ha) on new types of microscopy, including Stefan Hell's STED (with brief mentions of PALM and STORM), and Sunney Xie's foray into Raman spectroscopy. They also have the gigantic (a 13 meter electron microscope) down to the tiny (the 3 cm microscope-on-a-chip). Written in conversational style, nothing too heavy. Some fun summer reading!
