How do the properties of a solid gradually evolve as atoms are brought together to form increasingly larger units? In order to answer this question one must study aggregates of atoms too large to be called molecules but still too small to have even the structure of a crystal. Recent advances in experimental methods have made possible some first explorations in this long neglected but fascinating field of study.
