summary: Transmission electron microscope (TEM) is crucial device for characterizing numerous kinds of fabrics. utilizing a gentle microscope, the imaging answer is at a number of hundred nanometers, and for a scanning electron microscope, SEM, at a number of nanometers. The imaging answer of the TEM, besides the fact that, can usually succeed in numerous angstroms on a modem device. moreover, the TEM may also supply fabric structural details, because the electrons penetrate during the skinny specimens, and chemical compositional details as a result of the robust electron-specimen atom interactions. these days, TEM is largely utilized in assorted parts in either actual sciences (chemistry, engineering, geosciences, fabrics technological know-how, and physics) and existence sciences (agriculture, biology, and medicine), taking part in a key function in study or improvement for fabric layout, synthesis, processing, or functionality. This e-book offers a concise functional consultant to the TEM person, ranging from the newbie point, together with upper-division undergraduates, graduates, researchers, and engineers, on how one can research TEM successfully in a quick time period. it's written basically for fabrics technological know-how and engineering or similar disciplines, whereas a few purposes in lifestyles sciences also are incorporated. It covers lots of the parts utilizing TEM, together with the instrumentation, pattern coaching, diffraction, imaging, analytical microscopy, and a few newly constructed complicated microscopy recommendations. In every one subject, a theoretical heritage is to begin with in short defined, with step by step directions in experimental operation or computation. a few technical advice are given with a purpose to receive the simplest effects. the sensible strategies to obtain, study, and interpret the TEM info are for this reason supplied. This publication may possibly function a textbook for a TEM direction or workshop, or a reference publication for the TEM person to enhance their TEM talents

Although it is along [011] zone axis of the L12 ordered structure, the weak ordering spots are invisible since they are buried by overlapped large fundamental spots (disks). However, as shown previously in Fig. 14(c), the [011] NBED pattern taken by the smallest condenser aperture could clearly exhibit the L12 ordering. Therefore, normally the smallest condenser aperture should be used for NBED. In the NBED mode, in most case it is very difficult to tilt the sample, since the electron beam is so weak and the interested area is so small.

However, along the [110]p and [010]p zones, as shown in Fig. 5(b) and (c), respectively, the neighboring double Bi2O2 sheets are offset by half a period along the horizontal direction. Between the neighboring double Bi2O2 sheets are two layers of Fe−O/Mn−O, which have a similar triangle-stripe feature (consisting of weak dots) matching the Bi2O2 lattice 1:1 along the [100]p zone axis (Fig. 5a) but 4:3 under the [010]P zone axis (Fig. 5c). A structural model of the SC was proposed, Fig. 5 STEM images along the [100]p (a), [110]p (b), and [010]p (c) zone axes.

Afterward, use focusing knob to get the Scherzer defocus (the focusing values can be found on the instrument screen), which is the ideal defocus value for imaging. If the sample is very thin, under the Scherzer defocus the metal atoms should appear as dark image spots.
