Abstract

Si and GaAs p-n junctions have been characterised in the transmission electron microscope using off-axis electron holography. Focused ion beam milling was used to prepare parallel-sided membranes with thicknesses of 200–500 nm. Off-axis electron holograms were acquired at 200kV in order to assess the effect of specimen preparation on the electrostatic potentials measured across the junctions.
