Abstract : This minimization procedure is only necessary for samples that must be viewed in the hydrated state without prior drying. A more direct installation sequence may be used for initially dry samples. For some samples, it may be important to avoid dehydration, but the presence of additional water is not a problem. In such cases it is recommended that the sample be covered in excess water before using the optimized installation sequence.
