About this book

The first edition of this book was widely praised as an excellent introduction to electron microscopy for materials scientists, physicists, earth and biological scientists. This completely revised new edition contains expanded coverage of existing topics and much new material. The author presents the subject of electron microscopy in a readable way, open both to those inexperienced in the technique, and also to practising electron microscopists. The coverage has been brought completely up to date, whilst retaining descriptions of early classic techniques. Currently live topics such as computer control of microscopes, energy-filtered imaging, cryo- and environmental microscopy, digital imaging, and high resolution scanning and transmission microscopy are all described. The highly praised case studies of the first edition have been expanded to include some interesting new examples. This indispensable guide to electron microscopy, written by an author with thirty years practical experience, will be invaluable to new and experienced electron microscopists in any area of science and technology.

Media reviews
'! a tremendously readable account of modern electron microscopes and their capabilities, with excellent informative illustrations; its usefulness will not be confined to outsiders and newcomers.' Applied Optics '! a useful addition to any general electron microscopy laboratory.' Times Higher Education Supplement '! a very useful handbook for anyone in solid state or materials science.' Philosophical Magazine '! an exceptionally useful work ! there can be little doubt that the book will find its rightful place on the shelves of most students ands practitioners.' Micron and Microscopica Acta '! a very readable book aimed at the novice with limited mathematical background, but it will also be useful to practitioners in one branch of electron microscopy who would like to know what other instruments and techniques can offer ! The text is easy to follow, the diagrams are simple, informative and clear, and the photographs are of high quality.' P. E. Champness Geological Magazine ' ! a most readable non-mathematical overview of the development of the various fields of electron microscopy. It is a volume well worth having on one's bookshelf.' Jaakko Keranen, Microscopy 'The principles and practice of electron microscopy provides a most readable non-mathematical overview of the development of the various fields of electron microscopy, suited also to a nonspecialist ! This book satisfies all the requirements for an introductory text. It is a volume well worth having on one's bookshelf.' Jaakko Keranen, Microscopy and Analysis
