Laboratory Manual for Applied Botany by Estelle Levetin, Karen McMahon, Rob Reinsvold

By Estelle Levetin, Karen McMahon, Rob Reinsvold

Technological know-how schooling is experiencing a revitalization, because it is well-known that technological know-how will be available to all people, not only society’s destiny scientists. a technique to make the research of technology extra major to the non-major is to require a laboratory part for all technological know-how classes. the topic of utilized botany with its emphasis at the functional facets of plant technology, the authors think, should be attractive to the non-major because it exemplifies how a simple technology could be utilized to challenge fixing. Laboratory handbook for utilized Botany will make scholars notice that the research of crops is suitable to their lives and they can perform the invention technique of technology. even supposing the handbook comprises a lot of the fundamental plant anatomy present in typical botany manuals, it differs in taking a realistic procedure, reading these vegetation and plant items that experience sustained or affected human society.

The quality of the image presented in Fig. 1 is comparable to, or even better than, that reported for a similar film where ultramicrotomed sections, ∼20 nm thick, were examined by TEM/EELS imaging [16]. Further, it is emphasized that the image in Fig. 1 was obtained readily and quickly, in less than 1 h, including sample surface preparation. 40 Application Example 13: Cross-Sectional Examination of Al − Fe Alloy Fig. 1. Cross-section of a porous anodic oxide film grown on an Al − Fe alloy examined in the high-angle BSE imaging mode Application Example 14: Corrosion of an Al 2024-T3 Alloy for Aerospace Application In corrosion studies, SEMs have been widely used for the examination of sample surfaces after various corrosion tests.

With the cross-section of galvanized steel, prepared in the manner described above, the Zn/steel interface has been observed clearly in the highangle BSE imaging mode (Fig. 1). Over the steel substrate, a zinc layer, ∼20 μm thick, is observed; lamellar or colony structures, characteristic for eutectic zinc, are observed clearly through Z-contrast. In the zinc matrix, which exhibits a lighter contrast, sub-grains are also revealed by the channeling contrast (Fig. 1a). It is emphasized here that the area suitable for examination extends ∼2 mm along the interface.

2). Otherwise, or at acceleration voltages higher than 1 kV, 18 Application Example 5: Thin Layer of Organic Contaminant on the Surface Fig. 1. Thin contaminant layers over the surface of a mirror-polished, Ni-Pcoated hard disk substrate revealed by in-lens SE and high-angle BSE imaging the electron beam shoots down the contaminant layer and the layers can never be disclosed. Over the surface of mirror-polished Ni-P surface, darker spots of diameters up to ∼2 μm are revealed, though still only faintly, by in-lens SE imaging at, for example, the locations indicated by the arrows.
