Abstract

The development of tunable spherical aberration (Cs) imaging correctors for medium-voltage transmission electron microscopes (TEM) offers new opportunities for atomic-scale in-vestigations of materials. A very interesting class of microstructures regarding a variety of dif-ferent physical properties are the transition metal dichalcogenide misfit layer compounds exhibit-ing a high density of incommensurate interfaces due to their stacked nature. In the present study, the benefits coming along with the set-up of negative CS imaging (NCSI) conditions (in TEM) are demonstrated by means of different examples regarding local inhomogeneities in (PbS)1.14NbS2 crystals that can not be dissected in such detail by averaging x-ray techniques.
