  • Electron Microscope

    Electron microscope (Manning, n.d.) is the instrument used to magnify different scientific artifacts with the used of electron beams to create the illustration of the sample, and has the capacity to magnify two million times of the original specimen. The development of the electron microscope was first known in the year 1931 because Ernst Ruska and Maximoll Knoll magnified electron image successfully, but the equipment was actually constructed in 1933 (Innes, n.d.). The concept of the electron microscope came from Ernst Ruska’s ideas and first constructed publicly by Eli Franklin Burton at the University of Toronto together with the students. During the World War II, the advancement of an electron microscope has been controlled due to some…

  • Lithium And Electrons

    Lithium is the chemical element of atomic number 3, a soft silver-white metal. It is the lightest of the alkali metals. The two main parts of every atom are neutrons and protons. The three main subatomic particles that form an atom are protons, neutrons, and electrons. Electrons are the smallest of the three particles that make up atoms. Electrons are found in shells or orbitals that surround the nucleus of an atom. Protons and neutrons are found in the nucleus. They group together in the center…

  • Influence Electrons

    The atomic radius will slowly decrease as you move across a period on the periodic table; this is caused by the addition of protons found in the nuclei of the elements. For every new proton being added, several electrons will also be included into this process by joining the identical energy level (ultimately accounting for one electron per element in said period). The electrons then attract the protons, whilst failing to shield from or repulse this attraction. Given the above information, the…

  • Scanning Electron Analysis

    largely magnified image by using electrons instead of light to form an image. A beam of electrons is produced at the top of the microscope by an electron gun. It consists of an electron gun to produce high energy electron beam. A magnetic condensing lens is used to condense the electron beam and a scanning coil is arranged in-between magnetic condensing lens and the sample. The electron detector (Scintillator) is used to collect the secondary electrons and can be converted into electrical…

  • Electron Phonon Essay

    We now use the method described in Section 2 to studythe effects of electron-phonon interaction on the electronic transport properties of (C60-1X1)2(X=N,B) molecule. We set tC-C=2.5 eV, αC-C=6.31 eV/Å, KC-C=49.7 eV/Å2 [35] tC-B=1.17 eV, αC-B=6.04 eV/Å, KC-B=51.1 eV/Å2,tC-N=1.05 eV, αC-N=6.13 eV/Å, and KC-N=49.6 eV/Å2 [36] and T=300 K in the calculations. The doped atoms are located at about the same distance from each lead and they are indicated with a different color from C atoms in each…

  • Ultrafast Electron Microscopy Analysis

    Ultrafast Electron Microscopy has been demonstrated to be an effective table-top technique for imaging the temporally-evolving dynamics of matter with subparticle spatial resolution on the time scale of atomic motion. A stringent enhancement of the UEM temporal resolution is demanded for recording snapshots of the electron motion which will provide a real-time access to all microscopic motions outside the atomic core and radically change our insight into the workings of the microcosm. Here, we…

  • Electron Configuration Research Paper

    Electrons can be core or valence. The core electrons are like nobel gases and the valance are the rest. Like noble gases, core electrons do not react, but valence electrons do. Imagine, if you will, a reaction of sodium with chlorine gas. The sodium gives up a valence electron and chlorine gains one. The compound made is 1:1 Na:Cl. A similar thing happens with potassium and bromine, you get KBr. The electron configuration of sodium is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s1. The part up to 2p is just like the nobel…

  • Charge To Mass Ratio For An Electron

    The purpose of the experiment, “Charge to Mass Ratio for an Electron”, was to measure the charge-to-mass ratio (e/m) for an electron. This lab was performed to help students further understand the characteristics of an electron in regards to various things such as its magnetic field strength and velocity. By using a Daedalon (e/m) Apparatus paired with Helmholtz coils and a glass bulb filled with helium gas, students were able to observe electrons travelling in a circular path. This is due to…

  • Advantages And Disadvantage Of Electron Spectroscopy

    An electron vacancy is created and is further filled by an electron from the higher shell and thus an X-ray is emitted to balance the difference in energy between the two electrons. The detector placed on the energy dispersive spectroscope apparatus measures the number of emitted X-rays and their energies. Energy of the X-ray is characteristics of the element from which X-ray is emitted. A spectrum of the relative counts of the detected X-rays is obtained and evaluated for quantitative…

  • The Reflection Of Electron Motion In Atomic Systems

    Electron motion in atomic systems, which happens on timescales of attoseconds, is at the heart of all phenomena in nature (except for nuclear processes). Electron motion is responsible for the emission of light and photosynthesis in plants. Electron motion across biological molecules transports information in our nerves and is involved in processing this information in our brains. Moreover, the valence electrons are responsible for binding atoms to form molecules. The structural change of…
