This booklet is written for those whoknow little or nothing about electronmicroscopy and would like to knowhow an electron microscope works,why it is used and what useful resultsit can produce."With a microscope you see thesurface of things. It magnifies thembut does not show you reality. Itmakes things seem higher and wider.But do not suppose you are seeingthings in themselves."
Feng-shen Yin-Te (1771 – 1810)In The Microscope 1798
A publication ofFEI Electron Optics
FEI Electron Optics, a division of FEICompany, is one of the world’s lead-ing suppliers of transmission andscanning electron microscopes.Our commitment to electronmicroscopy dates back to the mid-1930s, when we collaborated in EMresearch programmes with universi-ties in the UK and the Netherlands.In 1949, the company introduced itsfirst EM production unit, the EM100transmission electron microscope.Innovations in the technology andthe integration of electron optics,fine mechanics, microelectronics,computer sciences and vacuumengineering have kept FEI at theforefront of electron microscopyever since.
