Can you see an electron?
No. It is far, far too small to be "seen" in any way in which we "look" at other stuff. Light, which is the medium for seeing things in the normal sense, is too "large" for the tiny electrons. We see things because the things we are looking at reflect light. The reflected light is what we form images with. Electrons are too tiny to reflect light. They are more likely to be "bumped around" by the light photons.

You cannot "see" particles that small with any modern tool. You can see individual atoms, but not smaller than that. See the Related Links for how you can see atoms and wha…t they look like.
Answer . No. The object observed is "seen" with electrons.
electronically-magnified image of a specimen
Electrons are too small to see, however one can detect them by their effects on other things.
they are very very very small like atoms and neutrons. Here is another example: Imagine an air molecule bigger than you that is about 55000 times the size of mount Everest …(becuz you are imagining you shrunk) then take a rubber ball (or an atom in this case) and then cut the rubber ball in half. then take one of the rubber fibers and you have an electron. In other words, they are very very very very small.
As far as I know, it is limited by the technology - it is dependent on how elaborate and sensitive detectors we are able to manufacture.
An electron microscope can only operate inside a vacuum chamber. A good vacuum, needed so that electrons do not collide with air molecules or dirt before reaching the sample a…nd the detector coming back, would be 1e-7 Torr or below. Your sample (the object of interest) has to be small enough to be mounted on a pedestal, which is inserted into chamber where the electron beam will be. The pedestal has to have multiple degrees of freedom so the e-beam can interrogate at various angle and position. The last requirement would be that your sample does not charge up too easily, which will distort the image. Charging can be lessened with a flash of gold. Hence, if your sample meets the requirements listed, you should be able to see its image on a monitor just as clearly as you see an object of a much larger scale, with an optical microscope. Any items that are detrimental to a vacuum formation (moist, spongy materials, for example) should probably be avoided. From an electron microscope, I have seen something as big as the compound eyes of a fly or a feature as small as 1 nm.
Well jimmywent to the store and bought one and he found that this was fun
If electron is not there,there is no electromagnetic field(no Space actually).so there is no life(nothing can exist).But through imagination you can see the nucleus and you ca…n feel it through the 6th dimension.
Our most powerful microscopes cannot see even an atom, being only a spec compaired to the atom itself, an electron is even smaller.
you can't. its to far away.
Can not see electrons.
Electron microscopes use a particle beam of electrons to illuminate the specimen and produce a magnified image with better than 50 pm resolution and magnifications of up to ab…out 10,000,000 times.
