About this book

This two-volume Handbook is a comprehensive guide to sample preparation for the transmission electron microscope. Sample Preparation Handbook for Transmission Electron Microscopy: Techniques describes 14 different preparation techniques, including 22 detailed protocols for preparing thin slices for TEM analysis. Compatibility and pre-treatments are also discussed. Experimental conditions and guidelines, options and variations, advantages and constraints, technical hints from the authors’ years of experience, common artifacts, and theoretical issues are all considered. Particular attention is given to the type of material, conditioning, compatible analysis of a given preparation, and risks. This practical and authoritative reference companion deserves a place on the bench in every TEM lab.

Key Features of the Handbook:

  • Combines all of the latest techniques for the preparation of mineral to biological samples
  • Compares techniques in terms of their application areas, limitations, artifacts, and types of analysis (macroscopic, atomic, or molecular level)
  • Describes physical characteristics, chemistry, structure/texture, and orientation properties of materials in relation to the most appropriate type of TEM analysis
  • Links to a complementary interactive database website which is available to scientists worldwide*
  • Written by authors with 100 years of combined experience in electron microscopy

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This textbook is the combined result … of four French microscopists and one Swiss microscopist who use similar TEM techniques for the study of quite different specimens; this explains the very wide scope in terms of techniques covered which distinguishes this book from related previous ones. … this recommendable book is useful for researchers and technicians working in TEM preparation laboratories. … a truly indispensable manual that is guaranteed to make it onto the shelf of almost every laboratory concerned with TEM sample preparation.” (Thomas Walther, Infocus Magazine, Issue 23, September, 2011)
