In the past two years, various achievements using Electron Diffraction (ED) techniques have been made in the fields of pharmaceutical compounds, macromolecules, polymorphism, material sciences, geological sciences, archaeological sciences, energetic materials and many others. Such experiments are done in a (modified)-Electron Microscope (EM). Since the realization of such experiments still requires plenty of expertise and efforts, it cannot be applied on daily basis. Pioneers in the field of Electron Diffraction (ED) all agree that a dedicated device for the realization of such experiments would be of great advantage to the crystallographic community, but such an instrument doesn't exist up to now.
