Advances in atomic resolution in situ environmental transmission electron microscopy for direct probing of gas‐solid reactions, including at very high temperatures (∼2000°C) are described. In addition, recent developments of dynamic real time in situ studies at the Angstrom level using a hot stage in an aberration corrected environment are presented. In situ data from Pt/Pd nanoparticles on carbon with the corresponding FFT/optical diffractogram illustrate an achieved resolution of 0.11 nm at… Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated in a nonlocal model for electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) that delocalization of scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) images for single, isolated atoms is primarily determined by the width of the probe, even for light atoms. Expand
