Electron microscope

The electron microscope is a type of microscope that uses electrons to create an image of the target.

It has much higher magnification or resolving power than a normal light microscope.

Although modern electron microscopes can magnify objects up to two million times, they are still based upon Ruska's prototype and his correlation between wavelength and resolution.

The electron microscope is an integral part of many laboratories.

Researchers use it to examine biological materials (such as microorganisms and cells), a variety of large molecules, medical biopsy samples, metals and crystalline structures, and the characteristics of various surfaces.
