Electron-Specimen Interactions

  • Ludwig Reimer
Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 36)


The elastic scattering of electrons by the Coulomb potential of a nucleus is the most important of the interactions that contribute to the image contrast. Cross-sections and mean-free-path lengths are used to describe quantitatively the scattering process. A knowledge of the screening of the Coulomb potential of the nuclei by the atomic electrons is important when calculating the cross-sections at small scattering angles.
