Electron holography has recently paved a new way for observing and measuring microscopic objects and fields that were previously inaccessible employing other techniques. FuH use is made of the extremely short wave length of electrons, enabling electron holography to have a great impact on fields ranging from basic science to industrial applications. This book will provide an overview of the present state of electron holography for scien tists and engineers entering the field. The principles, techniques and appli cations which have already been developed, as weH as those which are ex pected to arise in the near future, will be discussed. The strange and in teresting nature of electron quantum interference has intrigued the author who has devoted most of his life to this field, and motivated hirn to write this book in the hope of raising interest in, and encouraging others to enter, the field. The author would like to express his sincere thanks to Professor Emeritus Koichi Shimoda of Tokyo University, his mentor during his uni versity days. His sincere gratitude goes to Professor Chen Ning Yang of SUNY Stony Brook, Professor Hiroshi Ezawa of Gakushuin University, Professor Emeritus Ryoji Uyeda of Nagoya University, and Dr. Akira Fukuhara of Hitachi, Ltd. for their continued encouragement and helpful suggestions regarding the electron-holography experiments. Thanks are also due to the following colleagues for their collaboration in carrying out elec tron holography experiments: Tsuyoshi Matsuda, Dr. Junji Endo, Nobu yuki Osakabe, Takeshi Kawasaki, Takao Matsumoto, Takaho Yoshida, Dr.
