Here is the electron beam diffraction image observed with 180 degrees rounded. 13 electronic diffraction images centered in[110] are continually observed without lack. The center is an SEM image of the sample used for the observation. The sample was observed with sample rotation holder after processing to the diameter 0.2 µm column by FIB micro sampling method. Three-dimensional nanostructure analysis by an electron microscope can be said progressed.
