About this book


"Transmission Electron Microscopy" presents the theory of image and contrastformation, and the analytical modes in transmission electron microscopy. Theprinciples of particle and wave optics of electrons are described. Electron-specimen interactions are discussed for evaluating the theory of scattering and phase contrast. Also analysed are the kinetical and dynamical theories of electron diffraction and their applications for crystal-structure determination and imaging of lattices and their defects. X-ray microanalysis and electron energy-loss spectroscopy are treated as analytical methods. The third edition includes a brief discussionof Schottky emission guns, some clarification of minor details, and references to the recent literature.
