I will describe recent developments in low temperature ‘spectroscopic imaging’ techniques using scanning tunneling microscopy. These developments allow us to visualize complex electronic quantum matter directly at the atomic scale. As an example, we will visually explore the strange and beautiful nanoscale electronic structure of high temperature superconductors. Our group has made several recent discoveries in these materials –– observation of the pairing gap and its modulations, quantum interference patterns around impurity atoms, and modulations in the core of superconducting vortices –– that I will discuss in this talk.
