Elektronenmikroskopische Abbildung mit lichtelektrischen Elektronen in Zeitschrift fur Physik 86, pp. 448-450, July 1933 [FIRST WORKING PHOTOELECTRON EMISSION MICROSCOPE]

Berlin: Julius Springer, 1933. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION, FULL VOLUME, OF THE PAPER IN WHICH BRUCHE ANNOUNCES AND DESCRIBES “THE FIRST WORKING PHOTOELECTRON EMISSION MICROSCOPE” (Tao, A Historical Investigation of the Debates on the Invention and Invention Rights of Electron Microscope, Advances in Social Science, Education and Humanities Research, 233). Bruche was also the first to obtain a photoelectron emission microscope (PEEM) image and the paper includes three of those images. The paper also includes a sketch of his microscope.

Ernst Carl Reinhold Bruch (1900-1985) was a German physicist. “From 1928 to 1945, Bruche was head of the physics laboratories at the Allgemeine Elektrizitats-Gesellschaft (AEG) where he worked mostly on geometrical electron optics and on developing an electron microscope” (ibid). In building his microscope, he used the electronic optical component in the cathode ray oscilloscope and ultraviolet light to image photoelectrons emitted from a metal. “The principal design of his PEEM is still used” (ibid). Item #1612
