Williams and Carter has always been among the best introductory books for the field of transmission electron microscopy. With this revised edition, the authors have completely updated the text, including beautiful full color graphics and the latest advancements in microscopy. The text is divided into four parts: an introduction to the microscope itself, a study of diffraction theory, a guide to imaging, and a section on advanced spectroscopic techniques. This text isn't for the faint of heart--it's long and exhaustive, but completely readable throughout. The authors break down complex concepts in easy to understand language and make only basic assumptions about the reader's physics and materials science background. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a thorough and authoritative guide to all topics relating to transmission electron microscopy. The new graphics and additions sweeten the deal even more.
