We present a quantitative comparison between experimental position-averaged core-loss scattering from K-, L-, and M-shells of various elements and simulations based on a single-particle description of the core-loss process. To facilitate a direct comparison free of adjustable or compensating parameters, we compare absolute scattering cross-sections for zone-axis-aligned crystals whose thicknesses have been measured independently. The results show that the single-particle model accurately predicts the absolute scattering intensity from K-shells, and L-shells in some cases, but achieves only semi-quantitative agreement for M-shells.
Finding a faster alternative to tilt-series electron tomography is critical for rapidly evolving fields such as the semiconductor industry, where failure analysis could greatly benefit from higher throughput. We present a theoretical and experimental evaluation of scanning confocal electron energy-loss microscopy (SCEELM) using valence-loss signals, which is a promising technique for the reliable reconstruction of materials with sub-10-nm resolution. Such a confocal geometry transfers information from the focused portion of the electron beam and enables rapid three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction by depth sectioning. SCEELM can minimize or eliminate the missing-information cone and the elongation problem that are associated with other depth-sectioning image techniques in a transmission electron microscope. Valence-loss SCEELM data acquisition is an order of magnitude faster and requires little postprocessing compared with tilt-series electron tomography. With postspecimen chromatic aberration (Cc) correction, SCEELM signals can be acquired in parallel in the direction of energy dispersion with the aid of a physical pinhole. This increases the efficiency by 10×–100×, and can provide 3D resolved chemical information for multiple core-loss signals simultaneously.
