Abstract : Successful TEM experimentation depends on many things, one being specimen preparation. Whereas TEM samples of bulk metallic or ceramic materials can often be fabricated in quite straightforward manner, the need to examine non-bulk and/or other classes of materials creates a need for more specialized preparation techniques. This need is addressed in the present volume, in which more than 45 papers covering both general and materials-specific methods are described. Metallic, polymeric, plastic, semiconducting, ceramic, and magnetic materials, as found in bulk, thin film, dispersed and powdered forms are discussed. Keywords: Transmission electron microscopy; Specimen Preparation; Semiconductors; Ceramics; Polymers; Metals; Magnetic materials.
