Advances in Optical and Electron Microscopy, Volume 11 compiles papers on the important developments in optical and electron microscopy. This book discusses the instrumentation and operation for high-resolution electron microscopy; diffraction pattern and camera length; and electron microscopy of surface structure. The history of surface imaging by conventional transmission electron microscopy; ion probe microscopy; and secondary ion mass spectrometry with high lateral resolution are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the acoustic microscopy; quantitative methods; biological applications and near-surface imaging of solids; and interior imaging. This publication is a beneficial to students and individuals researching on optical and electron microscopy.
