MSA-Cambridge University Press Book Series on
"Advances in Microscopy and Microanalysis" (AMM)

Microscopic visualization techniques range from atomic imaging to visualization of living cells at near nanometer resolution, and advances in the field are fueled by developments in computation, image detection devices, labeling and sample preparation strategies. Microscopy has proven to be one of the most attractive and progressive research tools available to the scientific community, and remains at the forefront of research in many disciplines, from nanotechnology to live cell molecular imaging.

This MSA-CUP book series reflects the role of microscopy, defining it as any method of imaging objects of micrometer scale or less, and includes both introductory texts and highly technical and focussed monographs for researchers and practitioners in materials and life sciences.

The first two volumes of this book series have been published. These are:

Scanning Electron Microscopy for the Life Sciences. Heidi Schatten, editor. 2012.

Liquid Cell Electron Microscopy. Frances Ross, editor 2016.

These are the first volumes in a series commissioned to delineate advances in microscopy and microanalysis. There are a half dozen volumes to come that are under contract at present and more to come in the future.

We encourage the MSA membership to look for these volumes, some of which include topics such as :

  • X-Ray Microscopy
  • Single Atom Tomography
  • Energy Filtered Electron Microscopy
  • Wavefront Shaping for Biological Imaging
  • The SEM Image: Formation, Optimization and Interpretation
  • Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy in the Electron Microscope
  • Microscopic Nanocharacterization of Materials
  • NanoSIMS

If any member has an idea of topics for future volumes, please send a note to the series editors:
Patricia Calarco or Mike Isaacson.
