Praise for the Series
"Editing by P.W. Hawkes is immaculate and the production, in the usual style of Advances in Electronics & Electron Physics
, results in a volume that will be a handsome addition to any bookshelf."
"With the accelerating pace of research and development in so many areas of microscopy, keeping abreast of the widespread literature is becoming increasingly time-consuming. In Advances in Optical & Electron Microscopy
the Editors are to be congratulated on bringing together in a convenient and comprehensible form a variety of topics of current interest."
--J.A. Chapman in LABORATORY PRACTICE
