John C.H. Spence: High-Resolution Electron Microscopy, Oxford University Press, Oxford 2013, 432 S., geb., £75.00, ISBN 9780199668632

This new fourth edition of the standard text on atomic-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) retains previous material on the fundamentals of electron optics and aberration correction, linear imaging theory (including wave aberrations to fifth order) with partial coherence, and multiple-scattering theory. Also preserved are updated earlier sections on practical methods, with detailed step-by-step accounts of the procedures needed to obtain the highest quality images of atoms and molecules using a modern TEM or STEM electron microscope. Applications sections have been updated - these include the semiconductor industry, superconductor research, solid state chemistry and nanoscience, and metallurgy, mineralogy, condensed matter physics, materials science and material on cryo-electron microscopy for structural biology. New or expanded sections have been added on electron holography, aberration correction, field-emission guns, imaging filters, super-resolution methods, Ptychography, Ronchigrams, tomography, image quantification and simulation, radiation damage, the measurement of electron-optical parameters, and detectors (CCD cameras, Image plates and direct-injection solid state detectors). The theory of Scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) and Z-contrast are treated comprehensively. Chapters are devoted to associated techniques, such as energy-loss spectroscopy, Alchemi, nanodiffraction, environmental TEM, twisty beams for magnetic imaging, and cathodoluminescence. Sources of software for image interpretation and electron-optical design are given.

John C. H. Spence is Regent's Professor of Physics at Arizona State University with a joint appointment at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. He completed a PhD in Physics at Melbourne University in Australia, followed by postdoctoral work in Materials Science at Oxford University, UK. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, of the Institute of Physics, of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and of Churchill College Cambridge, UK. He is a recent co-editor of Acta Crystallographica and served on the editorial board of Reports on Progress in Physics. He has served on the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Molecular Foundry and the Advanced Light Source at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and the DOE's BESAC committee. He has been awarded the Burton Medal and the Distinguished Scientist Award of the Microscopy Society of America, and the Buerger Medal of the American Crystallographic Association.

Hochleistungslaser und Multiphysik

  • 25. January 2018

Soft­ware­platt­for­men für Optik­simu­la­tio­nen ha­ben in den letz­ten Jah­ren enor­me Fort­schrit­te ge­macht. Zum einen sind dank Multi­phy­sik­kopp­lungen viel re­a­lis­ti­sche­re Mo­del­le mög­lich, zum an­de­ren sind die Be­dien­ober­flä­chen be­deu­tend ein­stiegs­freund­li­cher ge­wor­den.
