Atom-probe box ion microscopy is at the moment the one process able to imaging sturdy surfaces with atomic answer, and while of chemically interpreting floor atoms chosen via the observer from the sector ion photo. box ion microscopy has been effectively used to check so much metals and lots of alloys, and lately solid box ion pictures of a few semiconductors or even ceramic fabrics resembling hot temperature superconductors were received. even if different microscopies are able to attaining a similar answer, there are a few experiments distinct to box ion microscopy--for instance the research of the habit of unmarried atoms and clusters on a high-quality floor. The very stylish improvement of the sector ion microscope with the atom-probe has supplied a robust and priceless method for hugely delicate chemical research. This e-book offers the elemental ideas of atom-probe box ion microscopy and illustrates many of the features of the approach within the learn of strong surfaces and interfaces at atomic answer.
