PHY 4861 - Physical Principles of Electron Microscopy Laboratory (1)

When Offered: Fall
This laboratory provides an introduction to the instrumentation and methods of scanning electron microscopy, including all electron optical components (electron sources and guns, electron lenses, deflectors, and stigmators). Electron beam-solid interaction physics and the resulting measurable signals are investigated. Image formation physics and a wide range of applications including qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques are fully developed in this course.
(ND Prerequisite: passing the math placement test or successful completion of MAT 0010 .) Corequisite: PHY 4860 . [Dual-listed with PHY 5861.] Dual-listed courses require senior standing; juniors may enroll with permission of the department. PHY 4861 is accompanied by a required lecture section.
