Figure 4
Scattering outside the objective lens aperture generates amplitude loss that varies based on atomic species. The smallest value calculated here (0.01 µm) is a pr­oxy for scattered versus not scattered electrons. A simulated amorphous carbon layer (as in Fig. 1[link]) scatters a total of ∼6.2% incident electrons elastically. Replacing the carbon atoms with gold atoms, ∼99.5% of electrons are scattered.
