Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201570255
Optimizing the optical properties of reduced-dimensionality materials requires characterization at the relevant length scale, often below the diffraction limit. On page 5693, D. F. Ogletree and co-workers review the current state of the art for 0D, 1D, and 2D nanomaterials, including novel techniques like the Molecular Foundry's Campanile probe.

Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201570254
Peptoid polymers combine the sequence programmability of biopolymer systems with the robustness and chemical diversity of traditional synthetic polymers. On page 5665, R. N Zuckermann and co-workers review recent developments in this emerging field, many of which have been pioneered at the Molecular Foundry, with an emphasis on combinatorial synthesis, structural control, and materials applications.

Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201570256
The self-assembly of molecules at surfaces can be caused by a range of physical mechanisms. Molecular Foundry researchers have described some apparently disparate systems in similar physical terms, indicating that simple factors, such as the geometry and energy scale of intermolecular binding, are key to understanding the self-assembly of those systems.

Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201570253
Electron tomography produces quantitative 3D reconstructions from sets of 2D projections acquired at different tilting angles in a transmission electron microscope. On page 5638, P. Ercius, G. Ren, and co-workers cover state-of-the-art techniques capable of producing 3D representations of hard and soft materials, such as Pt–Pd core–shell nanoparticles and IgG1 antibody molecules, that are imaged by Molecular Foundry scientists.
