Specimen Preparation Methods

Abstract

Specimen preparation ranges from direct and simple methods to complex, time consuming, and even frustrating ones. Fortunately, there are a number of simple methods that are quite adequate for some materials. For example, many particulate or fibrous materials may be handled by simple methods. This section covers a wide range of these simpler and generally more direct methods, which are described in broad subsections: optical microscopy (OM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and scanning probe microscopy (SPM) preparations. It must be emphasized that quick observation of most materials by a combination of a simple microscopy technique and direct preparation methods is often helpful in shedding light on the problem. This aids determination of the best approach to a solution. In many cases, there is no one correct approach, but there may well be approaches that can save time, if they are conducted early in the study.
