Early publications claimed it would be possible to achieve atomic scale
resolution with this technique, but so far the best reported spatial
resolution is 7-8 Å. The lack of atomic resolution was mainly attributed
to environmental disturbances, i.e. mechanical vibrations. However,
using a semi-classical model we show that there are inherent resolution
limits due to the combined effect of the finite spatial coherence length
of the emitted electrons and electron-optical aberrations. The
semi-classical model introduced here provides a general framework for
simulating the wave-optical properties of (photo)electron sources used
in electron microscopy, and evaluating the effect of the spatial
coherence length, source geometry and aberrations on the emitted
