Glossary terms about Accelerating Voltage

Accelerating Voltage
An operational term describing the voltage applied to the electron microscope that accelerates the electron beam down the column.


9 pages mention Accelerating Voltage

Acceleration voltage vs. specimen type
In theory, an increase in accelerating voltage will result in a higher signal (and lower noise) in the final image (micrograph). 
Magnification
 
Operation unit
Data such as accelerating voltage and magnification will be visible when the image in freeze mode. 
Sample preparation
 
Virtual SEM - bone
Shows the affect of such settings as accelerating voltage, spot size, Z-depth, filament current, magnification, and astigmatism. 
Virtual SEM - rock
Shows the affect of such settings as accelerating voltage, spot size, Z-depth, filament current, magnification, and astigmatism. 
Virtual SEM - slag
Shows the affect of such settings as accelerating voltage, spot size, Z-depth, filament current, magnification, and astigmatism. 
Virtual SEM - sparkler
Shows the affect of such settings as accelerating voltage, spot size, Z-depth, filament current, magnification, and astigmatism. 
What is resolution?
Wavelengths of electron beams generated at different accelerating voltages (compare with Table 1) accelerating voltage (kV) Wavelength (nm) (symbol = λ) 50 0.
