PS2.6: Electron Diffraction and crystallography
Session co-organisers: Angus Kirkland, Damien Jacob
The session concentrates on electron diffraction applications to electron crystallography.
It will highlight recent developments in the analysis of diffracted intensities for structural characterisation at the nanoscale.
This session will include developments in,  and applications of Convergent Beam Electron Diffraction  (CBED), Nano Beam Diffraction (NBD), Precession Electron Diffraction (PED) and time  resolved electron diffraction.
Contributions dealing with diffraction methods, theory or modelling as well as applications in the physical and life sciences are welcomed.
