Abstract

A number of scanning electron microscopes are now commercially available, and one such instrument is illustrated in Fig. 1. The control console of a scanning electron microscope consists of two major assemblies. The electron-optical column with the specimen chamber is located at the left of Fig. 1 and is mounted on a plinth containing the vacuum pumping unit. The assembly illustrated in the right portion of Fig. 1 includes display racks containing most of the operator controls, display cathode ray tube (CRT) screens, processing units, meters, etc.
