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

For TEM (transmission electron microscope), the primary electron beam typically with voltages of 100 to 300 keV at convergence half angle α interacts with a specimen sufficiently thin as shown in Figure 4363. An aperture (e.g. objective aperture) defines at the level of the specimen a solid angle of collection (acceptance half angle β of a few mrad). During this interaction, the occurred scattering events provide the information of momentum transfer q and of energy transfer ΔE.
