This book emphasizes the experimental aspects of the author's own laboratory.

Instead of merely presenting a dry collection of knowledge, the author unfolds to the reader his vivid experiences of enthusiasm, sheer pleasure, and yet frustrations in the course of his own research.

In this way, the book aims to arouse the reader's curiosity in the strange behaviours of electrons in the microscopic world, which differ significantly from our common sense and daily experiences of the macroscopic world.

The fields of physics explored in the book are quantum mechanics, superconductivity, electron microscopy, holography, magnetism and unified theory - areas of the author's study using electron waves.
