This paper discusses the preparation techniques which can be used for the examination of thick film resistor microstructures by Transmission Electron Microscopy. The application of this technique, including High Voltage Electron Microscopy and Electron Microscope Mass Analysis, to both Ruthenium Dioxide and Bismuth Ruthenate based thick film resistors, is considered.
