Abstract

The macroscopic properties of most materials depend directly on their microstructure and its local variability at the atomic level. Recent trends in high resolution electron microscopes (HREMs) have led to resolving powers on this scale, which in turn has made these instruments invaluable to many materials science investigations. The purposes of this short review are firstly to outline some of the fundamentals of high resolution image formation and interpretation and then to summarise some of the latest instrumental developments.
