This book covers the fundamentals of conventional transmission electron microscopy (CTEM) as applied to crystalline solids. In addition to including a large selection of worked examples and homework problems, the volume is accompanied by a supplementary website ( containing interactive modules and over 30,000 lines of free Fortran 90 source code. The work is based on a lecture course given by Marc De Graef in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'… ideal for students as well as for researchers new to the field.' Materials World

'The inner workings of the TEM are described comprehensively, from both a theoretical and practical point of view … engagingly written … This book aims to be a practical introduction and guide to TEM and achieves this extremely well.' Materials World

'… a clear and extremely well-illustrated do-it-yourself book on conventional TEM of crystals and their defects.' Ultramicroscopy

'The introduction to each chapter is engagingly written, generally beginning with some historic or real-world examples before getting into the mathematics behind the machine. This serves to whet the reader's appetite for more information as the chapters lead into well written mathematical theory … The book aims to be a practical introduction and guide to TEM and achieves this extremely well. Any student who reads this book from cover to cover and follows the examples given will be well on their way to performing useful TEM evaluation.' Materials World
