AbstractThis paper discusses the use of the cold field emission scanning electron microscope (CFE-SEM) for tricalcium silicate and ordinary Portland cement microscopy, with an emphasis on both the early stages of cement hydration and unhydrated samples. The recent discovery of nanoscale structures formed at the end of the induction period is described. CFE-SEMs are capable of operating at very low accelerating voltages and can thus produce very high magnification images without requiring coating of samples.
