Microscopes are used in biology to study organisms and can be affordable learning tools. Microscopy is a scientific discipline that involves magnifying objects that cannot […]

What’s Transmission Electron Microscopy?

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) uses beams of electrons to image very thinly sectioned samples at high resolutions. TEMs have played important roles in virology, cancer research, materials study, and microelectronics R&D. The first TEM prototype was built in 1931, and the technology was refined over the following decades. Scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) was developed […]
