Selected Literature about Electron Microscopy


Analytical Transmission Electron Microscopy - An Introduction for Operators
J. Thomas, T. Gemming, Springer, Berlin, 2014
Analytische Transmissionselektronenmikroskopie: Eine Einführung fuer den Praktiker
J. Thomas, T. Gemming, Springer, Berlin, 2014
A well written treatment of TEM and analytical methods on a student's level. The book is - as claimed in its title - a very suitable introduction for TEM beginners discussing important practical aspects and explaining the necessary theory mostly in a qualitative way.

Transmission Electron Microscopy
D. B. Williams and C. B. Carter, Plenum Press, New York, 1996

Covers all TEM methods, including analytical electron microscopy and electron diffraction. Gives only the basic theory but many hints for practical work. Most useful and highly recommended!

High-Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy and Associated Techniques
Ed. Buseck, Cowley and Eyring, Oxford University Press, 1988
Many examples from solid state chemistry and materials science.

High-Resolution Electron Microscopy
J. C. H. Spence, Oxford University Press,
3rd Ed., 2003
Comprehensive treatment of HRTEM and related techniques.

Transmission Electron Microscopy
L. Reimer and H. Kohl, Springer, 5th Ed., Berlin,
Revised version of "The Reimer". Comprehensive treatment of theory. For specialists!

Scanning Electron Microscopy and X-Ray Microanalysis
J. Goldstein, D. Newbury, D. Joy, C. Lyman, P. Echlin, E. Lifshin, L. Sawyer, J. Michael

Kluwer Academics/ Plenum Publishers, 3rd Ed., New York, 2003
Comprehensive treatment.

Aberration-Corrected Imaging in Transmission Electron Microscopy
R. Erni, Imperial College Press, 2nd Ed., London, 2015

Very useful introduction into aberration-corrected HRTEM and STEM.

Aberration-Corrected Analytical Transmission Electron Microscopy
R. Brydson (Ed.), John Wiley and Sons, Ltd., Chichester, 2011

Well written introduction into probe-corrected STEM and its applications.

Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy
S. J. Pennycook, P. D. Nellist (Eds.), Springer, New York, 2011

Comprehensive introduction into probe-corrected STEM including a detailed view on the history of STEM. Many examples of applications in various fields are given by specialists (review by A. Howie).
