How to clean a Transmission Electron Microscope without disassembling it

A new technique developed by researchers in Japan is also effective for analysis techniques requiring long time beam irradiation such as electron tomography, nanobeam electron diffraction, EELS (electron energy-loss spectroscopy), EDX (energy dispersive X-ray diffraction) and STEM (scanning transmission electron microscope), and thus it will contribute to advanced analysis techniques.
