We have developed a new analytical transmission electron microscope (TEM), called coincidence TEM, which, in principle, enables observation of elemental mapping images at a high signal-to-noise ratio. We have previously reported the successful observation of an elemental mapping image of a specimen, but over a very long period of time (168 h). To solve this(More)
We have developed a real-time wave field reconstruction transmission electron microscope system that enables auto focus tracking at a video rate. In the developed system, a high-speed image calculation technique using a graphical processing unit was incorporated along with two techniques facilitating high-speed focus control using high-voltage modulation(More)
The three-dimensional Fourier filtering method and Schiske's Wiener filtering method are compared with the aim of high-resolution wave field reconstruction of an unstained deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) molecular fiber using a through-focus series of images taken under a limited electron dose. There were some definite differences between the two reconstructed(More)
A computer-assisted minimal-dose system has been developed for the high-resolution observation of radiation-sensitive samples using a transmission electron microscope (TEM). This system consists of a CCD camera, a beam blanker and a control computer (PC) that also controls the TEM. A sample is illuminated by an electron beam only when the CCD camera takes(More)
Linear and non-linear image components in high-resolution transmission electron microscope images were successfully separated by applying a bandpass filter to the three-dimensional Fourier spectrum of its through-focus series of images. In the observed lattice image of a wedgeshaped Si [110] crystal, we determined the magnitude of the contribution of the(More)
Performance of a liquid metal sputtering system induced by a radio frequency (RF) power source has been investigated. The system was equipped with a spherical glass reservoir for liquid metal in order to minimize contamination due to metallic impuritiesl. The system was fitted with a planar magnetron electrode in order to confine the gas discharge near the(More)
