'... ideal for students as well as for researchers new to the field.' Materials World
'The inner workings of the TEM are described comprehensively, from both a theoretical and practical point of view ... engagingly written ... This book aims to be a practical introduction and guide to TEM and achieves this extremely well.' Materials World
'... a clear and extremely well-illustrated do-it-yourself book on conventional TEM of crystals and their defects.' Ultramicroscopy
'The introduction to each chapter is engagingly written, generally beginning with some historic or real-world examples before getting into the mathematics behind the machine. This serves to whet the reader's appetite for more information as the chapters lead into well written mathematical theory ... The book aims to be a practical introduction and guide to TEM and achieves this extremely well. Any student who reads this book from cover to cover and follows the examples given will be well on their way to performing useful TEM evaluation.' Materials World
This book covers the fundamentals of conventional transmission electron microscopy (CTEM) as applied to crystalline solids. Complete with over 300 line diagrams and half tones as well as a large selection of worked examples and homework problems; there is also a supplementary website containing interactive modules and free Fortran source code to accompany the text. Based on a lecture course given by the author in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, the book is ideal for graduate students as well researchers new to the field.
