Quote /About Microscopy and From Microscopists

Gareth Thomas

"In case there are people out there who still think TEM is just taking pretty pictures to fill up one's bibliography, please stop, pause...and digest the extraordinary intellectual demands required of the microscopist in order to do the job properly: crystallography, diffraction, image contrast, inelastic scattering events, and spectroscopy.""
