The three volumes in the PRINCIPLES OF ELECTRON OPTICS Series constitute the first comprehensive treatment of electron optics in over forty years. While Volumes 1 and 2 are devoted to geometrical optics, Volume 3 is concerned with wave optics and effects due to wave length. Subjects covered include:

Derivation of the laws of electron propagation from SchrUdinger's equation

Image formation and the notion of resolution

The interaction between specimens and electrons

Image processing

Electron holography and interference

Coherence, brightness, and the spectral function

Together, these works comprise a unique and informative treatment of the subject. Volume 3, like its predecessors, will provide readers with both a textbook and an invaluable reference source.


Electron microscopists, electronic engineers/designers, mass spectrometer and accelerator designers, and applied physicists.

@qu:The definitive text and source book in the field. @source:--PROCEEDINGS OF THE ROYAL MICROSCOPIAL SOCIETY @qu:This is a monumental and timely work-well researched. @source:-NATURE @qu:The large breadth of the subject, which has been organically treated, together with the monumental bibliography and the fairly complete subject index make this volume not only an exceptional reference and and guide book, but also a useful explanatory textbook and even a source of information forscience historians. It is a book for everybody interested in the productions of electron images and in their analysis (i.e. teachers, students, and researchers) and, of course, for libraries and laboratories. @source:--IL NUOVO CURENTO
