Successful transmission electron microscopy (TEM) experimentation depends on many things, one being specimen preparation. Whereas TEM samples of bulk metallic or ceramic materials can be prepared in a straightforward manner, the need to examine nonbulk and/or other classes of materials creates a need for more specialized preparation methods. This book from MRS, the fourth in a successful series, pioneers novel methods or ways of characterizing the specimen preparation process. Contributions to the book are tutorial in nature, and therefore somewhat longer than usual. Papers cover both general and materials-specific specimen preparation methods. Metallic, polymer, plastic, semiconducting, ceramic and magnetic materials as found in bulk, thin-film, dispersed and powdered forms are discussed.
