    Electron diffraction patterns of a Cu3Pd alloy were quantitatively analyzed by making good use of a wide dynamic range and good linearity of the imaging plate dedicated to an electron microscope. Intensities of both fundamental and superlattice reflections of the alloy having a one-dimensional long-period superstructure were measured in situ as a function of the temperature. The intensity changes of the superlattice reflections quantitatively evaluated clearly show the characteristic disordering process of the Cu3Pd alloy. It was demonstrated that quantitative structure analysis by electron diffraction patterns is possible with the use of the imaging plate if the dynamical diffraction effect is taken into account.
