Lass analysis using the scanning electron microscope
The reference should be in the BRITISH NUMERIC SYSTEM.
first thing try not to focus on how the machine work.
Reference should be in numeric references not less than 20. Journal and books.
A case study will be perfect.
Try to describe the analysis of glass by electron microscope. Eg aglass from the scene will be a trace. That can compared by a control sample which is a standard can be compared to the trace sample from the suspect.
glass has different content which is important to Mach a another glass content that then will indicates that they are the same electron microscope is able of looking at it using an X-ray scan tepical glass compound is silica and others manly four some glass has different colour which is related to the components of it. Eg whine glass. Will be efferent than a clear bottle. This sort of thing .
Your Powerpoint Presentation should follow the recommended basic structure which is outlined below.
1. A Title page containing your full name, enrolment number, project title, supervisors name.
2. An Introduction. This should set the work to be described in the wider context. It should review background information of direct relevance to your project, and previous work on the topic. Where the information you quote is not obviously common knowledge, factual statements should be authenticated by including literature references (see below). Be aware of the Universitys attitude to plagiarism and the law of copyright, and do not use other peoples work verbatim (word-for-word). The Introduction should clearly show the reader the problem under investigation, its significance set in the context of the past literature and the methods to be used in the problems solution. It should contain, normally at the end, an account of the aims and objectives of your investigation.
3. The Main Section:-
A Review of the Literature section in which you present the description, analysis and interpretation of your research. This section should form about 80% of the presentation. It is expected that there are two sub-sections to this part of the dissertation, these are:–
A description which will summarise your key findings in the form of text (supported by tables, diagrams, graphs and maps where appropriate, and integrated into the text). Remember that every information source should be fully referenced throughout.
An analysis which should identify differences between methods, techniques of analysis and other variables etc. This section gives you an opportunity to demonstrate your scientific knowledge that you have built up during the three years. You should be able to apply your knowledge to analysing your key findings, and comment upon things such as the suitability of the techniques used, the confidence in the results, ways in which the work could have been improved (for example, is there a better or different method, protocol or approach used these days, and if so, why ?) etc.
4. Conclusions. This is a brief summary of your investigation in the form of a discussion. State what you have found, as quantitatively as possible. It should also include your evaluation of the study:
Did the research fulfil the aims?
How successful has it been when used in forensic investigations? Are there any drawbacks or problems?
How could it be improved if it were to be repeated?
What would you recommend for future work in this area, and why?
5. References. You will use the NUMERIC system to present your references, and these should feature on the last few slides of your presentation. All references quoted in the text should appear here and, conversely, no references should appear in this list that are not quoted in the text. It is tedious to check this, but it is an important scientific convention on which your competence as a scientist will be judged. All science is based on the work of others, and your reader must be able to trace your references to the literature to their source. It should be pointed out that one of the first things that any one does to check whether a piece of work is reasonable is to check that the references in the text and reference list match exactly. You are likely to lose a substantial number of marks if that is not the case. Rarely, you may have accessed a range of literature which you have not specifically quoted which would help other workers progress in this area. You may include this as a separate section after your References, headed Bibliography. The publications here should be given in exactly the same format and in alphabetical order. Please see below for further information.
Presentation of Figures and Tables
Figures and Tables must be numbered individually in their order of appearance in the document (i.e. Figure 1, Figure 2, Table 1, etc.), and should be placed within the text, at the first appropriate place after the paragraph within which they have been referenced. Each Figure should have an explanatory legend, a descriptive sentence which explains as specifically as possible what the figure shows, along with a citation of the source if not original. A legend such as Graph of leaf area against altitudeis not much help to your reader! Figures must be clear and bold. Graphs with several lines must have those lines clearly distinguished. If colour is used, enable the reader to distinguish parts of the Figure if seen only as a black-and-white photocopy. All Tables should have an explanatory heading, with the same purpose as the legends for Figures as described above.
Maps, diagrams and graphs should be referred to as Figure 1, 2, 3, etc., while photographs should be referred to as Plate 1, 2, 3, etc. The descriptions of maps, diagrams, graphs, and plates should be placed underneath the illustration along with the citation (if appropriate). Tables (of figures/text) should be referred to as Table 1, 2, 3, etc., and the titles of tables should be placed above the table.
All Figures and Tables should be referred to in the text. In other words, only present Figures or Tables that you are actually going to describe, comment on or use to make a point. For example, you might say in your report The results presented in Table 1
