Aberration-corrected and energy filtered precession electron diffraction

We report initial findings on improvements to precession electron diffraction (PED) achieved through aberration correction of the probe-forming lens and by energy-filtering. Using current-generation aberration correctors, we show that PED patterns can, in principle, be acquired with sub-nm spatial resolution. We present initial experimental results that illustrate aberration-corrected PED of nanostructured alloys.
