Marton emigrated to the United States from Hungary in 1938. After holding several teaching positions at American universities, he joined the National Bureau of Standards in 1946 as a physicist in electron physics. He pioneered in electron microscopy and held patents in electron physics, electron optics, electron scattering, and electron interference.
This collection documents Marton's work with the electron microscope and consists of glass (lantern?) slides; experimental notebooks on electron microscopy and related technology; photographic data on electron microscope experiments, 1930-1950; blueprints of electron microscopes; drawings of photoelectric devices and their construction (1930s); and correspondence, 1908-1973.
