Atom probe tomography (APT) offers the enticing prospect of being able to determine the identity and position of nearly every atom in a material, providing the ultimate in elemental analysis.

Co-edited with Wiley, this tutorial guide begins with a brief history of the technique and provides simple explanations of the steps involved in conducting an analysis with modern-day atom probes. Several case studies detail examples of how APT is currently being used in geology, material sciences and more.

This is a must-read guide for students and any scientist interested in the impressive abilities of Atom Probes, the only instruments delivering 3D compositional imaging and analysis with near-atomic resolutiona and ppm sensitivity.
