Overview

This completely revised successor to the Handbook of Microscopy supplies in-depth coverage of all imaging technologies from the optical
to the electron and scanning techniques. Adopting a twofold approach, the book firstly presents the various technologies as such, before going
on to cover the materials class by class, analyzing how the different imaging methods can be successfully applied. It covers the latest developments in techniques, such as in-situ TEM, 3D imaging in TEM and SEM, as well as a broad range of material types, including metals,
alloys, ceramics, polymers, semiconductors, minerals, quasicrystals, amorphous solids, among others. The volumes are divided between
methods and applications, making this both a reliable reference and handbook for chemists, physicists, biologists, materials scientists and
engineers, as well as graduate students and their lecturers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Undoubtedly, this is a valuable addition to any material laboratory for motivating researchers/students togain new ideas on using microscopy methods to fundamentally understand their materials and technologies."  (Nanomaterials and Energy, 19 February 2013)

Meet the Author

Gustaaf Van Tendeloo studied physics and graduated from the University of Antwerp in 1974. He is now a professor at the University of Antwerp (UA) and part time professor at the University of Brussels (VUB). His research focuses on the applications of electron microscopy to different aspects of materials science. He is the author of 700 publications with over 16 000 citations to his work. Professor Van Tendeloo is the head of the electron microscopy group EMAT and director of the "Nano Center of Excellence" of the University. In 2009, he received an ERC
Advanced Grant.

Dirk Van Dyck is professor in physics and honorary vice-rector for research at the University of Antwerp. He graduated from the University of Antwerp in 1976 and spent his career at this University. Professor Van Dyck and has authored over 300 scientific publications in international
journals and was invited speaker at numerous conferences on electron microscopy and image processing. He was one of the co-editors of the Handbook of Microscopy. He received the Honory Franqui Chair of the University of Leuven and holds a Honorary Doctorship of the University of Lima.

Stephen J. Pennycook is a Corporate Fellow in the Materials Science and Technology Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and leader of the Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy Group. He graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1975, moving to Oak Ridge
National Laboratory in 1982. Professor Pennycook has authored over 380 scientific publications in international journals and was invited speaker at over 200 conferences. He is a member of the editorial boards of four journals and a fellow of five professional societies. For his work on Z-contrast microscopy he was awarded the Materials Research Society Medal and the Thomas Young Medal of the Institute of Physics.
