Keywords:

  • applications, of aberration-corrected STEM - and advent of aberration-corrected STEM;
  • high-angle annular dark-field (HAADF) - imaging mode of choice;
  • sample condition - samples for aberration-corrected STEM, being very clean;
  • HAADF imaging - intensity of feature in HAADF imaging, function of atomic number;
  • simultaneous SEM secondary electron imaging - with HAADF;
  • interfaces and extended defects (2-D) - planar interfaces, in semiconductor technology;
  • intracellular distribution of SWNTs - HAADF STEM image of SWNTs, within a lysosome;
