The penetration of electrons through solids is retarded by sequences of their interactions with the matter in which the electron changes its direction of motion and loses its energy. Inelastic collisions, the intensity of which reaches a maximum at around 50 electronvolts (eV) and drops steeply on both sides of this fuzzy threshold, are decisive for the penetration of electrons. Transmission microscopy (TEM or STEM) observes thin samples of tens to hundreds of nanometres in thickness by passing…

Low energy electron microscopy

Low energy electron microscopy (LEEM) is a surface imaging technique in which the surface is illuminated by an approximately parallel electron beam at near normal incidence. The image is formed with

Scanning transmission low-energy electron microscopy

An extension to the transmission mode of the cathode-lens-equipped scanning electron microscope, enabling operation down to the lowest energies of electrons, is discussed, enhancing the apparent transmissivity of the sample to more than 100%.
