The electron microscope uses electrons to make an object visible. The electron beam is not passed through a set of glass lenses to produce a high-resolution image, but through an electromagnetic field generated by electromagnetic lenses. The first instruments of this type were launched over 70 years ago and had a magnification factor of up to 80,000. The most modern devices are able to magnify more than two million times. This makes it possible to visualise an object that is 6,000 times smaller than the width of a hair.
