Transmission Electron Microscopy:
A Textbookfor Materials Science

One of the perks of being associated with Indiana University is that IU people can download individual chapters of the 2nd edition of Transmission Electron Microscopy by D.W. Williams and C.B. Carter from the Springer website. This link needs to be accessed from a computer known to be authorized as part of the IU system.

The EMC has also posted the first ten chapters (all of Part 1) on our website for members of the IU community (and only the IU community):


Chapter 1: The Transmission Electron Microscope


Chapter 2: Scattering and Diffraction

Chapter 3: Elastic Scattering

Chapter 4: Inelastic Scattering and Beam Damage


Chapter 5: Electron Sources


Chapter 6: Lenses, Apertures and Resolution


Chapter 7: How to 'See' Electrons


Chapter 8: Pumps and Holders


Chapter 9: The Instrument


Chapter 10: Specimen Preparation


Index to the entire book

For anyone unfamiliar with this book, even though it is geared towards the materials science community, it is quite readable and a great resource (especially Part 1) for anyone wanting to learn about electron microscopy.
