This authoritative volume, ideal for use in the laboratory, presents the practical and theoretical fundamentals of scanning and transmission electron microscopy--together in one convenient volume. Clear and concise explanations coupled with instructive diagrams and photographs guide youthrough microscope operation, image production, analytical techniques, and potential applications to various disciplines. Specimen preparation is discussed in detail, with emphasis on specific parameters for biological specimens. Since each laboratory has its own procedures, this unique bookcovers the essentials of scanning and transmission electron microscopy while leaving the laboratory particulars to individual discretion. Unmatched in scope and clarity--and filled with helpful diagrams, photographs, and drawings--this text offers the best introduction to scanning and transmissionelectron microscopy available. Due to its comprehensive coverage, the book will serve as an ideal course text in the electron microscopy classes organized for the benefit of advanced students in both the biological and physical sciences.
Stanley L. Flegler, John W. Heckman, Jr., and Karen L. Klomparens are at the Center for Electron Optics at Michigan State University.
