About this Textbook

Electron microscopy has revolutionized our understanding the extraordinary intellectual demands required of the mi­ of materials by completing the processing-structure-prop­ croscopist in order to do the job properly: crystallography, erties links down to atomistic levels. It now is even possible diffraction, image contrast, inelastic scattering events, and to tailor the microstructure (and meso structure ) of materials spectroscopy. Remember, these used to be fields in them­ to achieve specific sets of properties; the extraordinary abili­ selves. Today, one has to understand the fundamentals ties of modem transmission electron microscopy-TEM­ of all of these areas before one can hope to tackle signifi­ instruments to provide almost all of the structural, phase, cant problems in materials science.

Reviews

`The best textbook for this audience available.'
American Scientist, January-February 1998
`Ideally suited to the needs of a graduate level course. It is hard to imagine this book not fulfilling most of the requirements of a text for such a course.'
Microscope
`This book is written in such a comprehensive manner that it is understandable to all people who are trained in physical science and it will be useful both for the expert as well as the student.'
Micron
`The book answers nearly any question - be it instrumental, practical, or theoretical - either directly or with an appropriate reference...This book provides a basic, clearcut presentation of how transmission electron microscopes should be used and of how this depends specifically on one's specific undergoing project.'
MRS Bulletin, May 1998
`The only complete text now available which includes all the remarkable advances made in the field of TEM in the past 30-40 years....The authors can be proud of an enormous task, very well done.'
from the Foreword by Professor Gareth Thomas, University of California, Berkeley
