Visualizing and identifying single atoms using electron energy-loss spectroscopy with low accelerating voltage.

Abstract

Visualizing atoms and discriminating between those of different elements is a goal in many analytical techniques. The use of electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) in such single-atom analyses is hampered by an inherent difficulty related to the damage caused to specimens by incident electrons. Here, we demonstrate the successful EELS single-atom… (More)
