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


Crystalline Si has the space group of Fd-3m (see in Table 2019) and the space group for GaAs and InP is F-43m. Both these space groups are simple face-centred cubic (fcc) lattices.
