Abstract:

The spatialchemical relationship between bacteria, their biofilms, and metal substrata was examined in an environmental cell transmission electron microscope equipped with an energy loss spectrometer. The advantage of environmental cell transmission electron microscopy is that unfixed, hydrated specimens can be examined, in more or less their natural state, with high spatial resolution.
