In recent years, advances in scanning transmission electron microscopy instrumentation and technique have made it possible to perform core-level spectroscopy of materials at atomic spatial resolution. The implications of such a technique for materials science are far-reaching, with numerous recent works already demonstrating the ability to obtain previously inaccessible information on a variety of materials systems. This chapter provides an account of the recent advances in instrumentation, data processing, and theory that have made atomic-resolution core-level spectroscopy a practical tool for advanced materials characterization.
