In this chapter, a basic theory of annular bright field (ABF) STEM is described using the so-called “s-state model” based on the channeling theory for dynamical electron diffraction. The effectiveness of this method for observing complex structures and dopant atoms in crystals was already explained in Sections 3.9.5 and 4.1.3.
