The Hughes liquid crystal light valve has been coupled to a transmission electron microscope using a fibre optics plate and transmission phosphor. This system makes it possible to reconstruct in real time, electron images in coherent or incoherent light of arbitrary intensity outside the vacuum. The experimental results reported are used to estimate the design parameters of an on‐line coherent optical diffractometer for high resolution work. 1980 Blackwell Science Ltd
