First of all, these books are phenomenal. Without doubt the most clear, direct, well written texts I have used in my graduate work. They are a must have if you do any TEM work, especially in crystallography or metallurgy.
So why the two stars?
There seems to be some quality control issues with the publisher. I paid for the 4 volume set, and received 4 books. BUT, I have now realized preparing for my TEM exam that my copy of Part 3: Imaging is actually a second copy of Part 4: Spectroscopy in a Part 3 cover. How does this even happen? I'm way outside any sort of return window, but if some kind of resolution is offered, I'll change this. In the meantime; disappointing.
Again, awesome text, but check all four of your books when you receive them.

Great volumes for learning the basics and referring back to during research2020年1月5日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I paired this with sitting in on a class on Electron Microscopy and doing research using these methods. Reading will only get you so far in understanding, and so will research. Pairing discussion, reading, and hands-on work is most effective for feeling confident while using expensive equipment that is easily damageable and accurately processing and interpreting collected data. These volumes provide good base knowledge and visuals to build upon through other types of learning. The methods I was using, Scanning Electron Microscopy and X-ray Laue microdiffraction, were not both covered in depth, though what was included was still useful information. These are the books I found myself referring back to the most on my work measuring residual strains in natural materials.
Great TEM book2010年12月5日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This is one of the best text books I've ever used. It's very readable, & does a good job of presenting difficult material. I love the references at the beginning of each book detailing what different acronyms mean, and what different variables may stand for. They also have good 'how-to' sections of the book for specific processes in the TEM, like how to make an SADP, and so on. They really wrote this with the student in mind.

am i being scammed? -- ask yourself this before purchasing this product. the item description claims that this is a 4 vol. set, but the package i received contained only the first book. very disappointed, and will do everything in my power to rectify this and receive a full refund, or the remaining texts.
