    We observed 90° ferroelectric domain structure in a thin film of BaTiO3 by 300 kV electron holography, especially paying attention to beam-induced influence on the polarization and diffraction effect. The beam-induced influence was minimized by recording holograms on high-resolution films at...

    We demonstrate the use of a hole-free phase plate (HFPP) for magnetic imaging in transmission electron microscopy by mapping the domain structure in PrDyFeB samples. The HFPP, a Zernike-like imaging method, allows for detecting magnetic signals in-focus to correlate the sample crystal structure...

    Charged domain walls may have lower energy than charge neutral walls when large amount of aliovalent doping are present or when there are substantial amount of charged defects in the system. Charged domain walls can produce much larger contribution to functional properties than charge neutral...

    The induction of 90° magnetic domains in a Nd[sub 2]Fe[sub 14]B hard magnet has been mapped at high spatial resolution using off-axis electron holography. Line profiles from the reconstructed phase image established an upper limit for domain wall width of 10 nm. Thermal annealing resulted in...
