3DED: A brief overview of data collection, and data analysis

The determination of precise atomic arrangements in a crystal material is the key to understanding the structure-property relationship, and it will further facilitate synthetic designs of new materials. In the past decades, the structure determination of submicron/nanometer crystals has been achieved via 3D electron diffraction (3DED). This technique is also known as continuous rotational electron diffraction (CRED) or MicroED (microcrystal electron diffraction. Using this method, the precise structure of various materials, such as oxides, zeolites, MOFs, proteins, drugs, etc., have been widely reported. With the continuous collection mode available with 3DED, quicker data acquisition is enabled, which is beneficial for a wide range of beam-sensitive materials.

In this webinar, Dr. Xiaoge Wang from Peking University briefly introduces this interesting technique and demonstrates how 3DED data is collected and some basic 3DED data analysis methods.
