This three-volume set provides treatment of electron optics. Each volume focuses on different aspects of electron optics, but together these three volumes cover the whole of the subject, making this complete set a resource for anyone involved in the field of optics. Volumes 1 and 2 are devoted to geometrical optics, covering classical mechanics; calculation of static fields; the paraxial approximation; aberrations; deflection systems; computer aided electro-optics; instrumental optic aberration correction and beam intensity distribution; electron guns; and systems with a curved optic axis. Volume 3 covers wave optics and effects due to wave length, and deals with wave mechanics; electron interference and electron holography; theory of image formation; electron interactions in thin specimens; digital image processing; and coherence, brightness and spectral functions.

Review quote

Praise for the Series: "In electron optics there is no precedent... a momentous accomplishment. The list of references is a demonstration of how thorough a job the authors h ave done... A masterpiece." --Ultramicroscopy "This is a monumental and timely work - well reserached, carefully proof-read, and marked by clarity of thought and expression." --Nature
