Like jacks of all trades working in construction, materials chemists serve as civil engineers and architects, designing materials from the ground up and considering the form and function of internal and external structures. They also serve as carpenters, masons, and roofers, setting every building block precisely in its place.

Some of the structures have dimensions measuring mere nanometers from end to end, which can make the assembly job highly demanding. Today, though, researchers are using . . .
