Description

An electron microscope is a type of microscope that produces an electronically-magnified image of a specimen for detailed observation. The electron microscope uses a particle beam of electrons to illuminate the specimen and create a magnified image of it. The microscope has a greater resolving power than a light-powered optical microscope, because it uses electrons that have wavelengths about 100,000 times shorter than visible light (photons), and can achieve magnifications of up to 2,000,000x, whereas light microscopes are limited to 2000x magnification.

Papers (1-3 of 3)

  1. Nanostructure of Perpendicular Recording Media

    26 Sep 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk

    This write up examines the nanostructure of successive generations of perpendicular recording media, with particular emphasis on defects and elemental segregation.

  2. Evolution of microstructure and magnetic properties in magnetron-sputtered CoCr thin films

    02 Feb 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk

    In this work, transmission electron microscopy, including the Lorentz mode is combined with magnetic measurements (vibrating sample magnetometry and ferromagnetic resonance)to draw correlations between the structural and magnetic constituents in cobalt-chromium films of increasing thickness.

  3. Measurement of Twin Misorientation by use of First Order Laue Rings in CBED Patterns

    30 Jan 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk, D. E. Laughlin

    This work describes a novel microdiffraction technique, utilizing a fine electron probe to gauge twin misorientation at the nanoscale.
