This book looks at electron microscopy in a comprehensive way covering different types of microscope (SEM, TEM, etc.) and operating mode (HREM, CBED, HAADF, EELS, etc.).

The complex mathematics behind electron microscopy is avoided but explained in a simplified way. The students are referred to original ideas and related sources. They are advised to look at textbooks to broaden knowledge.
