Insights and alternative proposals on the phase retrieval in high resolution transmission electron microscopy

  title={Insights and alternative proposals on the phase retrieval in high resolution transmission electron microscopy},
  author={Usha Bhat and Ranjan Datta},
Alternative reconstruction method is proposed on retrieving the object exit wave function (OEW) directly from the recorded image intensity pattern in high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). The method is based on applying a modified intensity equation representing the HRTEM image. A comparative discussion is provided between the existing methodologies involved in reconstruction of OEW, off-axis electron holography and the present proposal. Phase shift extracted from the…

An alternative method of image simulation in high resolution transmission electron microscopy
An alternative approach to the image simulation in high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) is introduced after comparative analysis of the existing image simulation methods. The


Electron Holography with a Cs-Corrected Transmission Electron Microscope
A combination of both methods, that is, Cs correction and off-axis electron holography, opens new perspectives for complete TEM analysis on an atomic scale.
Phase retrieval through focus variation for ultra-resolution in field-emission transmission electron microscopy.
A dramatic improvement of the high-resolution performance of the electron microscope beyond the usual «point-to-point» resolution has been realized: Experiments on a 200-kV microscope with a point resolution of 0.24 nm reveal reconstructed information down to 0.
Phase measurement of atomic resolution image using transport of intensity equation.
The Transport Intensity Equation was applied down to atomic resolution images to obtain phase information and verified the following points experimentally: (i) although low frequency components are attenuated in the TIE, all frequencies will be recovered satisfactorily except the very low frequencies.
Off-axis electron holography: Materials analysis at atomic resolution
Abstract In high-resolution off-axis electron holography, the correction of coherent aberrations allows the quantitative interpretation of the amplitude and phase of the object wave up to the
Electron holography?basics and applications
Despite the huge progress achieved recently by means of the corrector for aberrations, allowing now a true atomic resolution of 0.1 nm, hence making it an unrivalled tool for nanoscience,
State of the art in atomic resolution off-axis electron holography
Abstract As proposed by Hannes Lichte, to resolve structure–property relations not only the question “Which atom is where?” but also the question “Which fields are around?” has to be answered.
Holographic focal series: differences between inline and off-axis electron holography at atomic resolution
Electron holography methods allow phase information to be recovered from electron waves at atomic resolution. Focal-series reconstruction, an inline method, and off-axis holography are currently the
Advanced double-biprism holography with atomic resolution.
The optimum biprism position as suggested by Lichte was implemented into a state-of-the-art transmission electron microscope for atomic resolution holograms with a width of 30nm and a fringe spacing of 30pm, and the practical improvements on hologram quality were investigated.
‘Big Bang’ tomography as a new route to atomic-resolution electron tomography
An electron tomographic method that can be used to determine, from only one viewing direction and with sub-ångström precision, both the position of individual atoms in the plane of observation and their vertical position is presented.
A new method for the determination of the wave aberration function for high resolution TEM 1. Measurement of the symmetric aberrations.
A new method for the accurate determination of the symmetric coefficients of the wave aberration function has been developed, allowing a very accurate automated aberration determination even for largely crystalline samples with little amorphous contamination.
