A micrograph is a reproduction of an image of an object formed by a particular kind of microscope(1); thus a photomicrograph is an image taken by a light microscope and a light-sensitive material (1,2) An electron micrograph is a photographic reproduction of an image formed by the action of an electron beam.(1) Likewise an X-ray micrograph involves any kind of X-ray microscopy.(3) Alternatively a microphotograph is a small, microscopic photograph, requiring a lens system to view its details.(1)
