Includes technical introduction to scanning and transmission electron microscopy with emphasise on FESEM and image gallery.
Learn about the basics and capabilities of electron microscopy.
The goal of this site is to explain the basics of most electron microscopy methods without giving too much of the complex theory and mathematics behind it. Thus, reading these pages can in no way substitute the study of textbooks.
Scanning Electron Microscopy course notes covers the basics of electron beam formation and sample interactions.
The Virtual Microscope, which is available for free download supports functionality from electron, light, and scanning probe microscopes, datasets for these instruments, training materials to learn more about microscopy, and other related tools.
An Ebook that includes the basic principals of operation, image display, the role of secondary and backscattered electron detectors, and the vacuum system. Further explanation of the SEM includes edge effect, the influence of accelerating voltage, the illumination effect of secondary and backscatter electron detectors, techniques for improving image resolution, benefits of different types of electron guns, elemental analysis, and sample preparation.
