What are electron microscopes?

An Electron microscope is a device used for producing highly magnified images of specimens. It has very high magnification and resolution.

It employs electron beams in place of light and uses electron lenses. The image of specimen can be seen directly or on monitors or in an electronphotomicrograph.

Electron microscopes can magnify objects up to several million times and are thus an important it tool in the hands of biologists.
