Electron tomography combining spectral and non-spectral modalitiesMS68

Using electron tomography, the three-dimensional structural and chemical information of materials can be characterized at the nanometer level. The most commonly used image signals are acquired using scanning TEM (STEM), which is a high-resolution and non-spectral modality. In addition, the spectral imaging mode called energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) can be adopted in electron tomography to directly map the chemical composition in 3D. However, EDS imaging presents low signal-to-noise ratios, which limits the resolution. In this presentation, I will introduce the approaches to combine the two complementary modalities in one tomographic reconstruction process for acquiring high-resolution chemical information in 3D.
