Abstract

The Cambridge University 600 kV high resolution electron microscope is currently operating with a directly interpretable image resolution of close to 2 Å. Following a brief outline of salient features of this HREM which have proven crucial to optimising its performance, details are given of methods whereby such high resolution levels are now obtainable on a routine basis. Some recent applications are also described. The success of these studies confirms that electron microscopy at the atomic resolution level will have an increasing impact in many areas of materials research.
