The electron beam symbol at the top of the left panel indicates a focused electron beam impinging on the flat surface of a specimen, resulting in a pear-shaped excitation volume in the bulk of the specimen. The wavey arrow to the left indicates the emission of X-rays characteristic of the specimen element, and the curved arrow to the right indicates the emission of low energy secondary electrons used as the signal source in scanning electron microscopes. Sounds pretty exciting, doesn't it? Select the symbol in the left panel to return to this main page.
Don't get me wrong, I really don't like the idea of a home page. It seems so arrogant. But I do find it helpful to be able to point to this page and suggest the interested person, and there aren't many, look for what might be of interest to him. My interest is instruction. If I can turn on one more kid, or one more experimenter, or one more instrument, there is a possibility for improvement, and I find satisfaction in that possibility. So read on, let your imagination run, and think of how you might use any of the ideas that have captured me.
