Properties of Commercial Films for Electron Microscopy

Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)


To make optimal use of silver halide emulsions for image recording in electron microscopy, especially with respect to radiation-sensitive specimens and utilization of redundancy for noise suppression, their properties must be known quantitatively.
