Summary

Summary

This "hands-on" laboratory guide provides full coverage of the principles and operation of both transmission and scanning electron microscopes. Readers will find a useful explanation of how and why electron microscopes work, as well as information on the electron gun, electromagnetic lenses, electron detection, and the vacuum system. The operation and alignment of the two types of microscopes is covered in separate chapters, while clear, detailed instructions help the novice to produce successful micrographs. The book also furnishes advice on how to optimize the accelerating voltage, condenser lens settings, aperture size and magnification, and on photographic recording. It will be of value to researchers in a wide variety of fields, including biology, medicine, physics, materials science, and engineering.
