The three volumes in the PRINCIPLES OF ELECTRON OPTICS Series constitute the first comprehensive treatment of electron optics in over forty years. While Volumes 1 and 2 are devoted to geometrical optics, Volume 3 is concerned with wave optics and effects due to wave length. Subjects covered include:
Derivation of the laws of electron propagation from SchrUdinger's equation
Image formation and the notion of resolution
The interaction between specimens and electrons
Electron holography and interference
Coherence, brightness, and the spectral function
Together, these works comprise a unique and informative treatment of the subject. Volume 3, like its predecessors, will provide readers with both a textbook and an invaluable reference source.
