This title offers a simple starting point to VPSEM, especially for new users, technicians and students containing clear, concise explanations. Crucially, the principles and applications outlined in this book are completely generic: i.e. applicable to all types of VPSEM, irrespective of manufacturer. The information presented will enable reader to turn principles into practice.
