Light microscopes have a low Resolution. This means that if the magnification is above 1500x the image wont be clear.
we can achieve a higher resolution with electron microscope
so we have two types of electron microscopes the first is
Transmission electron microscopes (TEM)
- The electron beam passes through a very thin sample.
- Electrons pass through the denser parts of the sample less easily, so giving some contrast.
- The final image produced is 2D
- The magnification possible with a TEM is 500,000x
Scanning electron microscope (SEM)
- The electron…
