A Scan Through the History of STEM

  • Stephen J. Pennycook
Chapter

Abstract

The development of STEM is outlined from the first developments by Baron Manfred von Ardenne, through the first successful field emission gun STEM by Albert Crewe and his collaborators, to its widespread application today in the era of aberration correction. The review focuses on the development and understanding of incoherent imaging and electron energy loss spectroscopy at atomic resolution and will not include details on microanalysis, low loss imaging, or specialized modes such as cathodoluminescence. Although it attempts to cover all the major advances in approximately chronological order, undoubtedly there are omissions and an overemphasis on developments that the author is most familiar with from his own history.
