Bridging the Gap in Crystal Size

MicroED is a new technology, which uses electron as incident beam to obtain MicroED microcrystalline electron diffraction data on Cryo-TEM.
Electrons interact with matter more strongly than X-rays. This means that MicroED may be used to solve structures from vanishingly small crystals(100–300 nm), but also implies that larger crystals (>1 um thick) cannot be efficiently penetrated by the electron beam. However, larger crystals can be thinning to appropriate thickness using focused ion beam (FIB) milling technique. Alleviating the need for large and high-quality crystal growth, MicroED is amenable to examine both crystals much smaller than the size typically needed for X-ray crystallography and larger crystals.
