This book (Practical Electron Microscopy and Database) is a reference for TEM and SEM students, operators, engineers, technicians, managers, and researchers.


To enhance EELS signal, the electron beam should be aligned by placing the Ronchigram (with a STEM-objective aperture) in the center of the GIF camera with Projector Lens Alignment (PLA) knob. This step is normally achieved by “VIEW” in DigitalMicrograph interface (see Figure 3326).
