The high resolution capabilities of a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) operated in the SEM mode have been used to examine the morphology of oxides on aluminum surfaces prepared for adhesive bonding by three commercial processes used in the aircraft industry. High resolution stereo micrographs obtained in this manner provide striking visual evidence for fine oxide protrusions which apparently interlock with the adhesive to enhance bond strength. (Author).
