Inelastic electron scattering experiments in a transmission electron microscope provide a probe of core electron excitations that have binding energies below 2 keV, and that are localized within submicron diameter sample volumes. Extended electron energy‐loss fine‐structure measurements which show the variation with temperature of the mean squared relative displacement of aluminum yield a localized measurement of the Debye temperature which is in excellent agreement with macroscopic measurements.
