The electron microscope uses the same principle of lenses and beams as a light microscope.
Features of the electron microscope
The electron microscope has electromagnetic lenses and an electron beam, whereas a light microscope uses a light beam and glass lenses.
The resolution of electron microscopes is far greater (magnification is up to 2 million times compared to the 2,000 times for a light microscope).
Different electron microscopes
There are several types of electron microscopes. The best-known are:
