Crystallization and Data Collection
In electron crystallography, preparation of suitably thin, oriented crystalline samples is vital to the success of an ab initio structure analysis. In certain cases, special measures must be taken to protect the crystals from the ultrahigh vacuum of the electron microscope column, else they will not remain ordered. It might also be desirable to carry out dynamic experiments (e.g., heating/cooling) on these samples while preserving their chemical integrity. These requirements dictate the type of preparative procedures that must be followed and, sometimes, call for special attachments to the electron microscope.
