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 no matter how the image is displayed, one could calculate the true magnification for that instance.
