Electron Microscopy: TEM vs. SEM

Electron Microscopy: Transmission Electron Microscopy vs. Scanning Electron Microscopy Electron microscopy is an effective method for obtaining high-resolution images in several fields such as biomedical science, forensics, and technology. Electron microscopes can capture far higher resolution images than light microscopes, providing information that would otherwise be very difficult to attain. The two most common [...]

Magnification or Resolution – which is more important?

Magnification versus Resolution - which is more important? We often get asked about magnification in Tabletop SEM.  Magnification is a relative term since the actual magnified size of an image depends on how it is displayed.  This is why the micrographs captured by Scanning Electron Microscopes almost always contain a "scale bar" so that [...]
