Scanning reciprocal space for solving unknown structures: energy filtered diffraction tomography and rotation diffraction tomography methods

Mauro Gemmi and Peter Oleynikov
From the journal


Structure solutions of CaFe2O4 from energy filtered and unfiltered precession electron diffraction tomography and rotation electron diffraction tomography data, collected on two different microscopes, are reported. The collected data are analysed with three available software packages (ADT3D, PETS and EDT-PROCESS) and the obtained results are compared. In all cases the structure solution is successfully achieved. Energy filtered precession electron diffraction tomography, performed here for the first time, gives sharper diffraction peaks and less background compared to the unfiltered data and the final recovered model is closer to the X-ray refinement. Simultaneously the first crystal structure solution obtained from the rotation electron diffraction tomography data is reported.
