Editorial Reviews

Review

"There is no other single volume that covers as much theory and practice of SEM or X-ray microanalysis as Scanning Electron Microscopy and X-ray Microanalysis, 3rd Edition does. It is clearly written [and] well organized[.]... This is a reference text that no SEM or EPMA laboratory should be without." --Thomas J. Wilson, in Scanning, Vol. 27, No. 4, July/August 2005

"As the authors pointed out, the number of equations in the book is kept to a minimum, and important conceptions are also explained in a qualitative manner. A lot of very distinct images and schematic drawings make for a very interesting book and help readers who study scanning electron microscopy and X-ray microanalysis. The principal application and sample preparation given in this book are suitable for undergraduate students and technicians learning SEEM and EDS/WDS analyses. It is an excellent textbook for graduate students, and an outstanding reference for engineers, physical, and biological scientists."
(Microscopy and Microanalysis, 9:5 (October 2003)

If you are like me and had to use a Scanning Electron Microscope or SEM, you want to start with the basics that everyone goes by. This book is a safe bet that most everyone knows about. Plus, it is written with very little background in the world of electron microscopy. Too many authors to list but it's wonderful that alot of experts got together to present this material in clear, concise manner. Before you grab your solid-state physics book or check Wikipedia, just relax and page through it since this book pretty much makes it easy for you.

Chapters are arranged by the following: What is SEM?, How SEM works?, and Why are we interested with SEM? That's the easiest way to explain rather than list all the chapters. If you have a specific question, you don't even have to read through the previous chapters (if you have rough understanding). The size of this book is a BIG PLUS. It's compact compared to the monsterous Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) book by Barry Carter which is another great reference. For this price, you would be lucky to find another good reference book under $100 with such relevant information.

This is the bible of SEM.

I just started working in a SEM lab and wanted to know more of the technical science behind it. My co-worker, who has been doing SEM for ~5 years recommend the book to me.

This book has greatly exceeded my expectations and has impressed me with the technical content.

Worth the $$$.

Includes all the basic terms and features than one is needed when begins electron microscopy, but also for the experienced ones to look back at various troubles they come up with during the use of SEM or XRD

This book covers almost all aspects of the subject and the CD attached covers the recent development in the field.

This is the book one should have for the subject.

Great guide for all Microscopists and Servicemen as me. Third edition explaines much more than previous one and it is easy to use due to well done contents.

I'm reading this book and an older edition of the Reimer text for in independent study course in SEM. While I'm only three chapters into both texts, the Goldstein text seems more readable. I like the writing style, and it doesn't seem to sacrifice in any technical aspect.

It is also very well illustrated. For a book about an imaging technology, this is obviously quite important. There are many instances where there are sets of images to compare the results achieved with varied operating parameters.

The text is well organized. It begins with an assumption that you know some basic physics and chemistry, but doesn't require any background in microscopy. Both the Table of Contents and Index are detailed enough to enable specific searches for specific subject matter.

This is a textbook I look forward to reading in the evening, and one that I look forward to finishing. It matches very well with the practical work I'm doing on the SEM.

To use SEM and its accessories one must have a through knowledge
about what is happening inside this column of electrons. This book
is a good gate for the tower of SEM which many people uses but a few
actually have enough knowledge how to use it efficiently

This book is a comprehensible review of principles and methods of SEM and X-ray microanalysis write in a single and elegant language. The authors avoid using mathematical formulas in the description and demonstration which turn it an atractive book to all scientists and even the beginners.
