Electron Microscopy in Solid State Physics

Front Cover

Elsevier, 1987 - Science - 596 pages
In almost all fields of research of science, engineering and medicine, electron microscopy as a method of directly imaging submicroscopic structures has become increasingly important. This book reports on the capabilities and limitations of the application of electron microscopy to solid state physics and materials science. The book is divided into two parts. In the first part, the methods of electron microscope examination employed in solid state physics are described, with special reference to the reliable interpretation of electron micrographs. The second part of the book deals with applications and covers those fields of solid state physics and materials science to which electron microscopy may appreciably contribute. The book is intended as a review for a wide circle of readers including solid state physicists and materials scientists. Those already familiar with electron microscopy will appreciate the up-to-date information on the latest methods and applications. Those who are not so familiar with electron microscopy will find the book to be a valuable introduction to the various fields of application, illustrated by a wealth of specially chosen examples.
