About this book

This book provides a coherent introduction to the principles and applications of the integrated electron microscope system. It is divided into three sections covering optical principles in diffraction and image formation, basic modes of light microscopy, and components of modern electronic imaging systems and image processing operations. Each chapter introduces relevant theory, followed by descriptions of instrument alignment and image interpretation. This revision includes new chapters on live cell imaging, measurement of protein dynamics, deconvolution microscopy, and interference microscopy.

Review of the first edition:

"[...] To conclude, it is an outstanding book!"
