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.
