    Abstract

    By means of electron holographic visualization of detailed electric potential distribution around sciatic nerve tissues coated with C and OsO 4, we show that the steady state of these specimens subjected to intense charging with electron irradiation is accompanied with a dynamic motion of collective secondary electrons; the secondary electrons emitted from the coated specimens revolve around the positively charged specimens forming stationary orbits. Further, this study clarified the possibility of the direct visualization of a part of the orbits of the collective secondary electrons without disturbing their motions.
