Electron Microscope

Electron microscopes are similar to light microscopes in many respects, but in place of light (photons), electrons are used to image the specimen. In a light microscope, the resolution is limited by diffraction, which becomes significant below the wavelength of visible light, 0.4 - 0.7 μm. In comparison, the wavelength…
