Northwestern Home Page           465: Advanced Electron Microscopy

In the field of observation, chance favors only the prepared mind
Louis Pasteur

The primary focus of this course is to provide both the fundamental theory as well as hands on practice with the use of transmission electron microscopy for more adavanced imaging and diffraction experiments. The course will cover some of the more mathematical aspects of imaging and dynamical diffraction, as well as computer simulations.

A prerequisite for the class is an introductory course in Transmission Electron Microscopy such as 460, the undergraduate equivalent 360 or equivalent, with a good knowledge of basic kinematical theory as well as operation of a TEM.
