Contributions of inelastically scattered electrons to defect images.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We have made measurements of the contribution of inelastically scattered electrons to images of dislocations in Ni{sub 3}Ga and nanometer-sized defects in ion-irradiated Au under weak-beam dark-field diffraction conditions [1]. The purpose is to determine the conditions for data acquisition required to eventually make detailed and quantitative comparisons to simulations of images for various defect models, thus determining defect structure, composition, and local strain field. Such image simulations usually consider only elastically scattered electrons, and thus it is important to understand and possibly eliminate the contribution of inelastically scattered electrons to the experimental images for quantitative comparisons with image simulations. ... continued below

Description

We have made measurements of the contribution of inelastically scattered electrons to images of dislocations in Ni{sub 3}Ga and nanometer-sized defects in ion-irradiated Au under weak-beam dark-field diffraction conditions [1]. The purpose is to determine the conditions for data acquisition required to eventually make detailed and quantitative comparisons to simulations of images for various defect models, thus determining defect structure, composition, and local strain field. Such image simulations usually consider only elastically scattered electrons, and thus it is important to understand and possibly eliminate the contribution of inelastically scattered electrons to the experimental images for quantitative comparisons with image simulations. Experimental data have been acquired with either JEOL 2010F or 3000F microscopes, both equipped with Gatan Imaging Filter electron spectrometers. Samples examined in the 2010F were Au, ion-irradiated to low dose (10{sup 11}Kr ions at 1 MeV energy) to form individual defects (1-10nm sized Frank dislocation loops and partial stacking fault tetrahedra). Samples examined in the 3000F were Ni{sub 3}Ga with long dislocation defects. Imaging conditions included weak-beam dark-field with deviation parameter generally > 0.2 nm{sup -1}. Energy filter slit width was set to 10 eV and centered on the zero loss peak in both instruments to obtain images produced by elastically scattered electrons. In the Au experiment an energy window was also set to image the 10-40 eV loss range to investigate the contribution to the defect images of plasmon-loss electrons. Electron intensity in defect images and backgrounds was measured by summing pixel values in appropriately sized rectangles using Digital Micrograph (Gatan) software.
