electron tomography; double tilt
Search CCDB for 'electron tomography; double tilt'
Definition -Derivation of 3D structure from a series of 2D projections obtained at different angles through a specimen imaged with transmission electron microscopy. Double tilt tomography involves obtaining projections as the specimen is rotated around a single fixed axis, followed by a second tilt axis usually 90° rotated from the first. Resolution of double tilt tomograms is usually greater than single tilt because more information is obtained from the specimen.
