Language: English (en)
Summary: Transmission electron microscope (TEM) is a powerful tool to investigate the lattice structure and defects on materials directly. It can easily get to atomic spacial resolution. It has been used to characterize carbon materials for a long time, from C60, carbon nanotubes (single-wall carbon nanotube and multi-wall carbon nanotube), to graphene, which is single layer graphite. Many techniques based on TEM make it more useful to image the carbon nanomaterials in both bright field and dark field .
