High-Resolution Electron Microscopy

John C. H. Spence


High-resolution electron microscopy covers both the practice and theory of atomic-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) in all its modern forms and applications, with the aim of ‘seeing atoms’ This new edition takes full account of the discovery of aberration correction techniques, which now allow electron microscopes to see detail as small as one atom. The type and arrangement of atoms gives materials their properties and organisms their function. The book presents clearly the underlying theory of atomic-resolution TEM and scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), and also ... More
