This JRA will push the capabilities of new techniques of electron state and chemical mapping as far as possible to the physical limit in a variety of materials science problems. Seven tasks were selected concerning different types of objects and properties. The general objective is to identify the best strategy to perform quantitative and reliable measurements and to extract from them the key physical or chemical information. All these tasks will therefore incorporate selection of the most efficient instrumentation and methods, support of theoretical modeling and estimation of the sensitivity.
