Atom Probe Tomographyis aimed at beginners and researchers interested in expanding their expertise in this area. It provides the theoretical background and practical information necessary to investigate how materials work using atom probe microscopy techniques, and includes detailed explanations of the fundamentals, the instrumentation, contemporary specimen preparation techniques, and experimental details, as well as an overview of the results that can be obtained. The book emphasizes processes for assessing data quality and the proper implementation of advanced data mining algorithms.

For those more experienced in the technique, this book will serve as a single comprehensive source of indispensable reference information, tables, and techniques. Both beginner and expert will value the way the book is set out in the context of materials science and engineering. In addition, its references to key research outcomes based upon the training program held at the University of Rouen-one of the leading scientific research centers exploring the various aspects of the instrument-will further enhance understanding and the learning process.

  • Provides an introduction to the capabilities and limitations of atom probe tomography when analyzing materials
  • Written for both experienced researchers and new users
  • Includes exercises, along with corrections, for users to practice the techniques discussed
  • Contains coverage of more advanced and less widespread techniques, such as correlative APT and STEM microscopy
Williams Lefebvre, Ph.D., is Associate Professor, Materials Physics Group, University of Rouen, France. He received his Ph.D. in Materials Science in Rouen in 2001 for his correlative analysis by transmission electron microscopy and atom probe tomography (APT) of phase transformations in titanium aluminides. He earned a fellowship to t...
