A case study is presented in which HREM, Z-Contrast Imaging and EELS are used as complementary techniques for elucidating interface structure. The NiO-ZrO 2 (cubic) interface is investigated along two orthogonal directions by these electron imaging and spectroscopy techniques to reveal the three-dimensional interface structure. Based on findings from this study, a protocol is suggested for using all three experimental techniques to gain a thorough understanding of interface structures.
