About this book

Providing concise definitions of over 2,500 terms used in the fields of light microscopy, electron microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, x-ray microscopy and related techniques, this dictionary is intended to provide easy navigation and be a reference for definitions of established terms.

I would highly recommend this book to everyone who has interest in modern microscopy. (Microbe, June 2006) "This dictionary offers a wealth of information, both for those in the microscopy field and those new to microscopy highly recommended." (CHOICE, April 2006) " a quick and handy bookshelf reference." (Veterinary Pathology, February 2006) "The book boasts a richness of content and illustrations that could contribute much t the work of novice and expert alike." (American Reference Books Annual, 2006) " provides easy navigation through the microscopy vocabulary. Essential and accessible, it can serve as a first point of reference " (, October 2005) " a most valuable contribution to the literature which warrants a place on the book shelves of all active microscopists." (Materials Characterization, August 2006) " a useful and very accessible scientific text. For any library certainly a book that would be worth considering for purchase." (Reference Reviews, 20:5, September 2006)
