Editorial Reviews


Spence has not neglected the practical side and gives very detailed instructions on how to use the instrument and the environmental and operating conditions required for optimum resolution. Microscopy and Analysis Each section is extensively referenced and there are several useful appendicies...overall this is an excellent book that meets and exceeds the author's aims and contains a wealth of information on high resolution electron microscopy... the book is written in a relaxed style, which makes it suitable for beginning and experienced users alike. Microscopy and Analysis

Format: Paperback
I bought the original 1980 addition 25 five years ago as a post-doc looking to get into high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). This book gave me what I needed to get started and publishing in what was then a fairly new field. Now imaging atomic lattices is fairly commonplace and HRTEM has gone well beyond the what was state-of-the-art in 1980. Nevertheless, if any topic is ever explained clearly even once, nobody will every bother again, so this is still a useful book in many ways. I found the introduction to phase contrast microscopy at the beginning of the book especially valuable--particularly in its use of actual electron micrographs to illustrate the appearance of a bright fringe at the edge of an object for the under focus condition, with a dark finge visible in the over focus condition. When read along with Cowley's book Diffraction Physics the reader has a pretty good picture of the still very useful conventional HRTEM technique.
