=================================================================================

By changing the angle of illumination upon the TEM sample, the coherence of the electron beam can be varied. Figure 1709 shows the ratio of Fourier spectra taken from two calculated CTFs at different beam convergences (0.38 and 0.36 mrad). This figure indicates the non-constant effect of coherence (beam convergence angle) on CTF.
