The practical application of electron holography to various materials has been pioneered by some research groups, for instance, by one group at the Hitachi Advanced Research Laboratory in Japan . Figure 2602a shows the most powerful TEM ever made, which is Hitachi 3 MeV.

Most modern scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) can record surface morphology but does not provide atomic resolution. The first atomic resolution, Hitachi aberration-corrected electron microscope, HD-2700C (page4444) was installed at Brookhaven National Laboratory .
