Concept Info

NAME

Electron microscopy

DESCRIPTION

Electron microscopy uses a beam of electrons to illuminate a sample and achieve much higher spatial resolution than light microscopy. Transmission electron microscopy generates an image of the internal structure of a thin sample. Scanning electron microscopy generates a topological image of a sample.
