Basic Electron Microscopy

Arthur Rowe

The Knowledge Base at a Simple Level

introduction
Introduction
  • These 3 presentations cover the fundamental theory of electron microscopy
  • In presentation #1 we cover:
    • the bits of optics we need to know
    • production of an electron beam
    • why we need vacuum & how we get it
    • the foundations of electron optics

Sites for Electron Microscopy

These sites contain useful information concerning most of the range of techniques available

***************************************************************

Microscopy & Imaging: Resources on the WWW (University of Arizona)

http://www.pharm.Arizona.edu/centers/tox_center/swehsc/exp_path/m-i_onw3.html

Everything in sight (site ?), including the “Electron Microscopy Yellow Pages” !

**************************************************************

*****************************************************

Gina Sosinsky’s EM Outreach program:

http://em-outreach.sdsc.edu/

Based at the Supercomputing Center at San Diego, this site includes a very full set of Web-based lecture notes. Good text, but sadly, Gina has had problems getting many microscopists to agree to copyright release for their work, so for the moment the illustrations are rather minimal. One slight mis-statement, it is said that shadowing usually gives much worse resolution than negative staining. Not true.

*****************************************************

*****************************************************

Analytical Imaging Facility at Albert Einstein College of Medicine:

http://www.aecom.yu.edu/aif/welcome.htm

Concentrates heavily - as you would expect - on the analytical side of microscopy. All types are considered, light and electron microscopy being integrated together. As you might expect from the Albert Einstein, this site is a fantastic resource

*****************************************************

*****************************************************

Helen Saibil’s home page:

http://www.cryst.bbk.ac.uk/~ubcg16z/saibil.htm

Lovely images and some movies of selected protein-based systems, including chaperonin (GroEL - GroES) and pore-forming toxin (pneumolysin)

*****************************************************

*****************************************************

UNSW’s Image Gallery:

http://srv.emunit.unsw.edu.au/html/gallery/gallery.htm

Slanted towards histology in the biology section, but good images

*****************************************************

slide8

****************************************************

University of Sussex - EM site

http://www.biols.susx.ac.uk/Home/Julian_Thorpe/cover.htm

some good teaching material at a simple level, as well as some pretty images.

and you can of course go on almost for ever, if you enter ‘electron microscopy’ into a search engine (SCIRUS is good for science)

so now, on to the basics . . . . . .

the tem column
The TEM Column
  • Gun emits electrons
  • Electric field accelerates
  • Magnetic (and electric) field control path of electrons
  • Electron wavelength @ 200KeV  2x10-12 m
  • Resolution normally achievable @ 200KeV  2 x 10-10 m  2Å
