High Resolution UHV Electron Microscopy on Surfaces and Heteroepitaxy


Surface structure observations by high-resolution UHV electron microscopy at the atomic level summarized. Both the profile imaging in transmission electron microscopy and superlattice imaging in reflection electron microscopy are applied to image the reconstructed structure of gold surfaces and Si(111)7×7 surfaces.
