Ruiz-Zepeda et al. patterns can be displayed as a phase or an orientation map of the scanned area [29]. In a modern TEM with a FEG tip, a small probe of around 1–2 nm size (Fig. 17b) can be formed in NBD mode by using a small condenser aperture; this will yield a high spatial resolution of the map. If the sample is thick, however, the trade-off of selecting the smallest spot size and aperture is to preserve enough brightness in the diffraction pattern. When using precession, the effective focused beam size on the specimen will suffer from beam broadening due to spherical aberration for the nonaxial trajectories, and this will be more noticeable when increasing the precession angle [26].

15, Au clusters smaller than 2 nm could be analyzed, which suggests an electron probe size smaller than 2 nm, with convergence angles smaller than 1 mrad. Combining this D-STEM capability in a Cs-probe corrected TEM with precession electron diffraction capabilities opens up the possibility to obtain crystallographic maps from samples with spatial resolution of approximately 1 nm or below. In the following sections, different applications of the D-STEM technique coupled with precession electron diffraction and automated diffraction pattern recognition software are presented and their advantages discussed.
