Structure refinement using precession electron diffraction tomography and dynamical diffraction

The method for accurate structure refinements from three-dimensional precession electron diffraction data using dynamical diffraction theory has been applied to different samples. The data were measured on different instruments and with variable precession angles. A large series of tests revealed that the method provides structure models with an average error in atomic positions typically between 0.01 and 0.02 Å compared to the reference structures. The method allows a reliable determination of site occupancies and absolute structure.
