Electron Microscopy of Incommensurate Structures

  • G. Van Tendeloo
  • J. Landuyt
  • S. Amelinckx
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 166)


Some of the different electron microscopy techniques useful for the study of incommensurate modulated structures are briefly discussed and applied to two different systems: the incommensurate phase in barium sodium niobate and the long period superstructures in Cu3Pd.
