Precession electron diffraction and its advantages for structural fingerprinting in the transmission electron microscope

  • Peter Moeck and Sergei Rouvimov


The foundations of precession electron diffraction in a transmission electron microscope are outlined. A brief illustration of the fact that laboratory-based powder X-ray diffraction fingerprinting is not feasible for nanocrystals is given. A procedure for structural fingerprinting of nanocrystals on the basis of structural data that can be extracted from precession electron diffraction spot patterns is proposed.
