Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)

Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)

Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) definition This is a powerful electron microscope that uses a beam of electrons to focus on a specimen producing a highly magnified and detailed image of the specimen. The magnification power is over 2 million times better than that of the light microscope, producing the image of the specimen which enables easy characterization of the image …

Electron Microscope

Electron microscope definition An electron microscope is a microscope that uses a beam of accelerated electrons as a source of illumination. It is a special type of microscope having a high resolution of images, able to magnify objects in nanometres, which are formed by controlled use of electrons in vacuum captured on a phosphorescent screen. Ernst Ruska (1906-1988), a German engineer and academic professor, …
