Samples that are to be examined with the aid of a microscope must be prepared specifically for the instrument. To do this, the conditions of the instrument and the sample holder must be known: sample size - sample height or thickness - surface condition - conductivity - vacuum resistance. For any examination procedure, the sample should first be viewed with a light microscope.
There are preparation facilities for the use of the available equipment. This option is primarily intended for users …
