About this book

This Handbook is a complete guide to preparing a wide variety of specimens for the scanning electron microscope and x-ray microanalyzer. Specimens range from inorganic, organic, biological, and geological samples to materials such as metals, polymers, and semiconductors which can exist as solids, liquids, and gases. While the Handbook complements the best-selling textbook, "Scanning Electron Microscopy and X-Ray Microanalysis, Third Edition", by Goldstein, et al., it is entirely self-contained and describes what is needed up to the point the sample is put into the instrument.Photomicrographs of each specimen complement the many sample preparation 'recipes'. Additional chapters describe the general features of specimen preparation in relation to the different needs of scanning electron microscopes and x-ray microanalyzers, and an appendix covers chemicals and equipment applicable to any of the recipes. This authoritative yet practical handbook is an essential reference for anyone who uses these instruments, and assumes only an elementary knowledge of preparation techniques to guide the reader through the specific protocols.

Contents

Introduction. 1. The need for sample preparation. 2. The general features of specimen preparation. 3. Preparation of specific types of sample. Appendix. Glossary. Index. References.

Media reviews

This handbook should find its way to the reference bookshelf of all imaging laboratories. It should also become required reading for anyone being trained for SEM work, or anyone who might need to have their samples examined by using such techniques. In that way, it will be less likely that deficient results will be published and that the full potential of the SEM be realized. -- Iolo ap Gwynn, Microscopy and Microanalysis (2010)
