Course objectives
Interaction of electrons with solids, types of electron microscopes. Imaging in a transmission electron microscope (TEM), specimens for the microscopy. Electron diffraction (scattering on an atom and a lattice, point diffraction pattern, Ewald construction, deviation from the exact reflection condition). TEM diffraction contrast (extinction contours, contrast of crystal defects). Kinematical and dynamical theory of contrast. Kikuchi lines. Practical tasks of electron diffraction and TEM. Application of stereology. High resolution electron microscopy HVEM (ideal imaging, influence of the real microscope, thin phase object, transmission function). Microdiffraction, CBED. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray microanalysis.
