Use of Electron Microscopy for Investigating Teeth Erosion
...Electron Microscopy for Investigating Teeth Erosion
The advent of electron microscopy began with the development of electron optics by Hans Busch (Klein, Buhr and Frase 2012, 298). This soon gave way to the invention of the first electron microscope by Ruska (Klein, Buhr and Frase 2012, 298). Prior to the invention of electron microscope, light microscope using visible light was the only tool available for magnification of microscopic objects. Theoretically, a light microscope’s magnification power is infinite, while its resolving power is limited to 200 nm because of the fixed wavelength of photons in visible light (Carter & Shieh 2009, 135). Due to this limitation... , the...
