Electron Microscopy 101
Electron microscopy (EM) describes a broad range of techniques that use an electron beam to obtain a sample's structure and composition. EM allows you to see details too small for standard light microscopes - from the platelets in a blood vessel to the individual proteins that dot the platelet's surface, from microscopic cracks in a steel beam to the individual atoms within the beam, electron microscopy reveals the hidden world all around us.
Our Electron Microscopy 101 blog series explains the basics of this fascinating tool and the various characterization techniques that come with it. Click the links below to learn about the formation of an electron beam, how it interacts with atoms, and how those interactions can tell us what we're seeing.
