Abstract

The instrumental requirements and operational techniques for successful convergent-beam electron diffraction are given, based on actual experience of diffraction from some fifteen different substances. Of the various contamination control techniques used, cooling the specimen to below -130°C has been found highly effective and the most convenient. Results, drawn mainly from symmetry determination work, are cited to illustrate the effectiveness of the techniques.
