Abstract
The goal of this chapter is to outline two novel strategies for fingerprinting nanocrystals from structural information that is contained either in a precession electron diffraction (PED) pattern of a single nanocrystal (1,2) or in a fine-grained crystal powder ellectron diffraction ring (CPEDR) pattern with random orientation of the nanocrystallites (3-5). While structural fingerprinting from CPEDR patterns can be conveniently performed with a large primary beam diameter so that experimental data may be recorded for many crystals at once, PED of individual nanocrystals requires the application of nanobeam diffraction techniques.
