How much is a scanning electron microscope?

Today, the cost of an upper echelon field emission scanning electron microscope, with accessories, is approaching $1 million. This can be out of range for most laboratories.

Keeping this in view, what is a scanning electron microscope used to study?

The transmission electron microscope is used to view thin specimens (tissue sections, molecules, etc) through which electrons can pass generating a projection image. The TEM is analogous in many ways to the conventional (compound) light microscope.

What is the resolution of a scanning electron microscope?

Scanning Electron Microscope Resolution: In a SEM, an electron beam scans rapidly over the surface of the sample specimen and yields an image of the topography of the surface. The resolution of a SEM is about 10 nanometers (nm).
