The practical details for the direct measurement of structural phases and magnitudes from centrosymmetric crystals using three-beam convergent beam electron diffraction patterns are given. These details are presented as a step-by-step guide for easy implementation. Each step is illustrated with worked examples from α-Al2O3. Twenty-nine measurements of 6 independent three-phase invariants and 87 measurements of 10 independent structure magnitudes have been made.
