Analytical transmission electron microscopy (ATEM) is unique among materials characterization techniques as it enables essentially the simultaneous examination of microstructural features through high-resolution imaging and the acquisition of chemical and crystallographic information from small regions of the specimen. This article illustrates the effectiveness of the technique in solving materials problems. The first section of the article provides information on analytical electron microscope (AEM) and its basic operational characteristics as well as on electron optics, electron beam/specimen interactions and the generation of a signal, signal detectors, electron diffraction, imaging, x-ray microanalysis, electron energy loss spectroscopy, and sample preparation. The second...
