Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Serial block-face scanning electron microscopy (SBFSEM, SBEM) is a well established method in life sciences. The combination of ultramicrotomy and scanning electron microscopy enables imaging with high resolution and the reconstruction of big volumes compared to other methods. Recent publications, where computer simulations were performed additionally to volumetric information about different materials, show that this method will contribute to material sciences, technology and industry services.
