Plane Wave of Electron Beam
- Practical Electron Microscopy and Database -
- An Online Book -  


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



The plane wave of electron beam propagating in z-direction (optical axis) can be given by,

          Plane Wave of Electron Beam ---------------------- [4203]

         a -- Amplitude
         k -- Wavenumber (=1/λ)
         λ -- Wavelength
         ω -- Frequency

By weakening the strength of the condenser lens (e.g. in TEM), the electron beam incident on the specimen is enlarged so that a wide area on the specimen is covered. That is, the electron beam can be approximately considered as a plane wave incident on the specimen.
