This text is a companion volume to Transmission Electron Microscopy: A Textbook for Materials Science by Williams and Carter. The aim is to extend the discussion of certain topics that are either rapidly changing at this time or that would benefit from more detailed discussion than space allowed in the...
In volume XVI of The Collected Letters of Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, 25 letters of Van Leeuwenhoek have been included, all of them written from July 1707 to June 1712. The letters were written to six distinct addressees. The larger part was addressed to the Royal Society in London in general...
Focuses on light microscopy. This title provides an explanation of the basic modes of light microscopy and the components of modern electronic imaging systems and guides the reader in determining the physicochemical information of living and developing cells, which influence interpretation.
Covering a diverse range of practical applications and real-world examples, Scanning Probe Microscopy for Industrial Applications examines important and successful applications of SPM in various industries, including food science, personal care industry, and forestry applications. Author D.G.
This book gives the basic theoretical background needed to understand how electron microscopes allow us to see atoms, together with highly practical advice for electron microscope operators. It covers the usefulness of seeing atoms in the semiconductor industry, in materials science, in condensed matter physics, and in biology.
Compiled by editors with hands-on experience in microscopy, teaching, and protocol design and communication, this book provides a practical, bench-side guide to the various methods and applications of the advanced light microscope in the cell biology laboratory.
Efficiency and life time of solar cells, energy and power density of the batteries, and costs of the fuel cells alike cannot be improved unless the complex electronic, optoelectronic, and ionic mechanisms underpinning operation of these materials and devices are understood on the nanometer level of individual defects. Only by...
By E. L. Wolf
Electron tunnelling spectroscopy as a research tool has strongly advanced understanding of superconductivity. This book explains the physics and instrumentation behind the advances illustrated in beautiful images of atoms, rings of atoms and exotic states in high temperature superconductors, and summarizes the state of knowledge that has resulted.
