Signal-to-noise ratio of electron micrographs obtained by cross correlation

Abstract

The signal-to-noise ratio of electron micrographs can be determined by two-dimensional digital cross correlation even though neither signal nor noise can be analysed separately. Such measurements suggest how best to make use of the electron microscope.
