A number of successful uses of FSR aiming a straightforward image interpretation , the correction of residual aberration , and the improvement of the HRTEM technique spatial resolution  have been already described in the literature. An example which illustrates the image improvement when FSR method is applied to structural analysis is depicted on Figure 4. These images show the comparison between an original HRTEM image and a phase image of the reconstructed wavefunction . Geometric Phase Analysis (GPA)  is a methodology for measuring and mapping structural displacement fields on HRTEM images using a reference lattice.
