The techniques required to record standard convergent beam electron diffraction patterns in an analytical electron microscope are discussed in detail, with emphasis on the design of electron optics in commercial instruments. Practical comments are included on specimen preparation, the influence of crystal defects, tilting to major zone axes, and alignment(More)
In the present work, we have determined the space group of human tooth-enamel crystals using--for the first time for a biological crystal--convergent beam electron diffraction (CBED). The symmetries observed in the different patterns we have obtained lead us to the P6(3)/m hydroxyapatite space group. Disorder, most likely situated in the columns formed by(More)
The second generation biofuels exploits the lignocellulosic materials. The main advantage is to not compete with food chain. In the case of thermochemical means (gasification in an entrained flow reactor followed by Fischer-Tropsch synthesis), a grinding step is necessary to inject particles into the burner. The targeted particle size is about 200μm to(More)
We studied diffusion of Mn in ZnO nanowires by means of field-emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, photoluminescence and Raman scattering spectroscopy. The Mn-diffused samples were prepared by covering synthesized ZnO nanowires with a Mn chip and then annealing at temperatures between 200 and 1000(More)
