“Sample preparation guide for Transmission Electron Microscopy, Volume 1 & 2”
The first volume covers theoretical and practical aspects of sample preparation for TEM.
The second volume is dedicated to technical hints. It compiles 36 preparation detailed protocols for TEM analysis.
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis is an important step for studying the structure and chemistry of materials. Therefore, Jeanne Ayache, Luc Beaunier, Jacqueline Boumendil, Gabrielle Ehret and Danièle Laub created the internet website:
Sample preparation guide for Transmission Electron Microscopy (websites under reconstruction)
This website is dedicated to TEM sample preparation in the interdisciplinary field of Material Science, Earth Science and Biology. Designed in French and English, this website is accessible free of charge for the whole national and international electron microscopy community. This website contains « an interactive educative guide » composed of a data base including all kinds of materials, allowing automatically, to make the decision on the choice of the best TEM sample preparation technique with regard to the specific material properties and the type of analyses required. This website encompass 36 sample preparation techniques.
