Off-axis electron holography has been extended to in situ observations in gas atmospheres. The Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ)-Pt hetero-interface was characterized by electron holography at high temperature in a vacuum and in an oxygen atmosphere. Analysis of the phase shift profiles revealed high mobility of anions in the oxide in the vicinity of the(More)
The controlled generation of magnetic fields to study switching processes in magnetic materials in the transmission electron microscope (TEM) is highly challenging [1-3]. Here, we use electron holography to study the magnetic field around a carefully fabricated current-carrying wire. As a result of the fact that a current flowing parallel to the plane of an(More)
Electron waves that carry orbital angular momentum (OAM) are characterized by a quantized and unbounded magnetic dipole moment parallel to their propagation direction. When interacting with magnetic materials, the wavefunctions of such electrons are inherently modified. Such variations therefore motivate the need to analyse electron wavefunctions,(More)
It has recently been shown that an electron vortex beam can be generated by the magnetic field surrounding the tip of a dipole-like magnet. This approach can be described using the magnetic Aharonov-Bohm effect and is associated with the fact that the end of a long magnetic rod can be treated approximately as a magnetic monopole. However, it is difficult to(More)
Redox reactions were studied at a single yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ)/Pt electrode interface, in parallel with pure YSZ with no catalyst electrode, by in situ analytical electron microscopy at elevated temperatures and in an oxygen atmosphere. In situ electron holography showed that the oxide underwent reduction at elevated temperatures in a vacuum and(More)
We use in situ Lorentz microscopy and off-axis electron holography to investigate the formation and characteristics of skyrmion lattice defects and their relationship to the underlying crystallographic structure of a B20 FeGe thin film. We obtain experimental measurements of spin configurations at grain boundaries, which reveal inversions of(More)
Electron energy-loss magnetic chiral dichroism is a powerful technique that allows the local magnetic properties of materials to be measured quantitatively with close-to-atomic spatial resolution and element specificity in the transmission electron microscope. Until now, the technique has been restricted to measurements of the magnetic circular dichroism(More)
Electron waves give an unprecedented enhancement to the field of microscopy by providing higher resolving power compared to their optical counterpart. Further information about a specimen, such as electric and magnetic features, can be revealed in electron microscopy because electrons possess both a magnetic moment and charge. In-plane magnetic structures(More)

The phase and amplitude of the electron wavefunction that has passed through ultra-thin flakes of WSe2 is measured from high-resolution off-axis electron holograms. Both the experimental measurements and corresponding computer simulations are used to show that, as a result of dynamical diffraction, the spatially averaged phase does not increase linearly(More)
