Yes, I'm serious.
What components correspond to an individual scan vrs what components can be cascaded across all objects?
Ex: The vacuum chamber can be cascaded ( colocate the sample chambers within a single vacuum enclosure). Whereas there will need to be individual detectors for each sample
Can there be a singular electron source? Using multiple magnetic focal lenses to direct those electrons to the individual samples?
Can this idea be extrapolated to significantly downsize the components of an electron microscope?
