The Scanning Electron Microscope-A New Tool in Disc-Recording Research

The scanning electron microscope (SEM) has only recently become generally available as a commercial device. The combination of high resolution and high magnification with a remarkable depth of focus provided by the SEM, together with simple procedures in specimen preparation, make this instrument admirably suited for use in disc-recording research and development.
