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


It was experimentally observed that the Kikuchi pattern diffraction contrast disappears when amorphous layers is deposited on crystalline samples [1 - 2].
