In quantum mechanics, entanglement and correlations are not just a mere sporadic curiosity, but rather common phenomena at the basis of an interacting quantum system. In electron microscopy, such concepts have not been extensively explored yet in all their implications; in particular, inelastic scattering can be reanalyzed in terms of correlation between the electron beam and the sample. While classical inelastic scattering simply implies loss of coherence in the electron beam, performing a…

Photon-induced near-field electron microscopy (PINEM): theoretical and experimental

Electron imaging in space and time is achieved in microscopy with timed (near relativistic) electron packets of picometer wavelength coincident with light pulses of femtosecond duration. The photons

Optical excitations in electron microscopy

This review discusses how low-energy, valence excitations created by swift electrons can render information on the optical response of structured materials with unmatched spatial resolution. Electron

The results reveal the potential of quantum control for the precision structuring of electron densities, with possible applications ranging from ultrafast electron spectroscopy and microscopy to accelerator science and free-electron lasers.

Spectroscopic coincidence experiments in transmission electron microscopy

We demonstrate the feasibility of coincidence measurements in a conventional transmission electron microscope, revealing the temporal correlation between electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) and

A scheme to coherently control the electron wave function from attosecond to zeptosecond timescales by using semi-infinite light fields is discussed.

Correlation and the density-matrix approach to inelastic electron holography in solid state plasmas

Collective excitations in solid state plasmas are a good candidate to measure correlation lengths of conduction electrons. The method of choice seems to be energy filtered electron holography in the

The coherence of light is fundamentally tied to the quantum coherence of the emitting particle

This work uses quantum electrodynamics to show how the particle’s momentum uncertainty determines the optical coherence of the emitted light and proposes new Cherenkov detection schemes, whereby measuring spectral photon autocorrelations can unveil the wave function structure of any charged high-energy particle.

Optical coherence transfer mediated by free electrons

This work theoretically investigates the quantum-coherence properties of the cathodoluminescence emission produced by a temporally modulated electron beam and predicts the presence of phase correlations between the emitted CL field and the electron-modulating laser.

Ghost imaging with thermal light: comparing entanglement and classical correlation.

A scheme for coherent imaging that exploits the classical correlation of two beams obtained by splitting incoherent thermal radiation, and a precise formal analogy is pointed out that opens the possibility of using classical beams from thermal radiation for ghost imaging schemes in the same way as entangled beams.
