Dissemination of IT for the Promotion of Materials Science (DoITPoMS)



Through this TLP we have seen how a beam of electrons is generated, manipulated and detected in an electron microscope. We have explored the various components of the electron microscope, and seen how they work together to extract information from a sample on the nanometre scale.

Finally, we can begin to appreciate the power and versatility of electron microscopy, and how it may be useful in the study of materials.
