Lattice Image of Twin Structure observed directly by Electron Microscope in a Crystal of Copper Phthalocyanine

Article metrics

Abstract

RECENTLY, with the increase of the resolving power of the electron microscope, it has become possible to make a direct observation of a crystal lattice composed of large molecules. J. W. Menter1 succeeded for the first time in observing the lattice structure and the edge dislocation contained in it in crystals of metal phthalocyanines. This method is also applicable to the study of the local variation of the fine structure in a crystal lattice, and the so-called selected area micro-diffraction method, when used jointly with this method, has proved its further usefulness.
