Surface properties of the supporting films can infuence the final image. The meniscus of the negative stain around the virus particle or macromolecule depends on the surface properties of both the protein structure and the supporting film (hydrophilic or hydrophobic; see diagram in Nermut 1982a). Hydrophobic patches can develop within several days on glow-discharged films.

The improved resolution of heavy metal shadowing (2 nm or less) has been achieved thanks to the introduction of electron beam evaporators allowing the use of metals with very high melting points such as Pt, W or Ta/W. Fig. 15 in the chapter on Iridoviridae shows the surface structure of Frog virus 3 after freeze-etching and shadowing with Pt/C. 5 nm. Very good results have also been obtained with adenoviruses (Fig.
