Imaging by Using a Convex Lens as a Phase Shifter



An electron microscope is composed of many of axially symmetric magnetic field as a convex lens for imaging. In this appendix, the performance of the convex lens is further explained from the viewpoint of wave optics. Basically, it is the same as that of a convex lens made of glass. Let us start with the characteristic nature of electron waves.
