About Scanning Electron Microscope
Since 1937, scientists worldwide have marveled at the universe that is beyond the human field of vision using microscopes. Today, a scanning electron microscope allows them to see particles with absolute precision. Using high-energy electrons, these microscopes image items as small as a speck of dust with spectacular attention to detail. Using the high-resolution images a microscope produces, it is possible to map an organism's chemical and physical characteristics. Thanks to their ability to characterize solid materials, these microscopes are particularly useful to those working in geology. In addition, scientists working in labs can use them for exact sample preparations, making it easier to conduct studies and run tests. For those who want to use one at home, a USB electronic microscope is an option. While these are not as powerful as lab versions, they allow users to explore the microscopic world around them by uploading images to their computers. If you are enticed by the microscopic world, shopping the large inventory on eBay for a scanning electron microscope is a great way to open up your eyes to science.
