(p.233) 8 Scanning transmission electron microscopy and Z-contrast
High-Resolution Electron Microscopy

John C. H. Spence

Oxford University Press

Chapter 8 reviews the theory of scanning transmission electron microscopy using a field-emission electron microscope. The bright-field, dark-field, and high-angle dark-field modes are described, and the reciprocity theorem explained. The theory of partial coherence is applied in terms of detector functions. Three-dimensional tomography using STEM is reviewed, as is the incoherence Z-contrast method. The effects of electron channelling are explained, and artefacts due to multiple scattering outlined.

Keywords:   STEM, Z-contrast, tomography, HAADF, incoherent imaging
