The abovementioned complementary synergy team of experts with expertise in spectroscopy, microscopy and electron optic will develop the MORE-TEM nanospectrometer as “tabletop synchrotron (SP1) to study spatial (SP3) and momentum (SP4) mapping of nanoscale matter specimen (SP2). See sketch below. Figures in the sketch are adapted from the listed references.
