Electron Crystallography research line develops new transmission electron microscopy techniques for the investigation of inorganic, organic and biological materials. Thanks to the strong interaction of the electrons with matter and the capability to focus electrons in nanometric bright beams, electron diffraction is the only single crystal diffraction technique that can be performed on nanocrystals. Our TEM (Trasmission Electron Microscopy) has been modified in order to collect 3D electron diffraction data (electron diffraction tomography) EDT on any kind of nanocrystalline material. The data collection procedure has been automatized and optimized in order to perform fast measurements even on materials sensitive to strong electron beams. Our field of investigation spans from mineralogy to solid state chemistry, from organic crystallography to protein structure determination.
