A two-stage electron microscope using a pointed filament

As it is easier to reduce aberrations due to imperfect alignment in a two-stage electron microscope than in a three-stage microscope, it was our intention to achieve a higher resolution with an ordinary two-stage electron microscope using an improved pointed filament and electron lenses having adequately short focal lengths. The HU-6 of Hitachi (old type) was used as test electron microscope. Its maximum electron-optical magnification is 15000, its design is very simple, and it allows various experiments to be carried out, because all its parts can be dismounted.
