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



A scintillator is used to converte the incoming electron signal, which is from column of electron microscope, to visible light that is amplified by a photomultiplier (PM) tube as shown in Figure 4868. The dynodes form electron nultiplier. This system, that acts as a high-sensitivity and low-noise photon detector, is used to detect secondary electrons in SEM, transmitted, diffracted, and energy loss electrons in TEM, and primary scattered electrons in STEM.
