Physics: atomic-scale surface imaging ushered nanotechnology:

Physics - Proper carbon ID required:
"The ability to image surfaces with atomic-scale resolution in the 1980s ushered in the nanotechnology era. From the beginning, it was understood that although scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) could resolve distances between individual atoms on surfaces, what the images really showed were spatial variations in the electronic density of states of the surface near the Fermi level"
