Electron crystallography is a method to determine the arrangement and types of atoms within a structure. The technique is used to study perfect crystal structures as well as defects and interfaces. When compared to X-ray crystallography, this technique allows samples six orders of magnitudes smaller to be studied. Moreover, the crystallographic structure factor phases can be easily determined numerically.
