Title:
Application of the ESEM technique in wood research: Part I. Optimization of imaging parameters and working conditions 
Abstract:
A study using the ESEM (Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy) technique was performed on wood objects in order to assess the particular advantages, possibilities, and limitations of this microscopic tool. In contrast to conventional high vacuum SEM, in ESEM specimens can be investigated in a gaseous atmosphere, usually of water vapor. This enables the observation of non-conductive, polymeric, composite, and porous materials (such as wood) in their natural state, without drying, eva...    »
