Electron beams have long been used to analyse materials - for example in electron microscopes. Their rotation usually plays no role in this.
EMCD stands for "Energy-loss Magnetic Chiral Dichroism" and is the electron microscopic counterpart to XMCD, a technique used at the synchrotron to detect magnetic moments.
Cathodoluminescence is the excitation of light by means of a cathode (electron) beam.
VEELS is used to measure band gaps or to characterise optical properties of materials.
In transmission electron microscopy, "low-voltage" refers to high voltages below 60 kV. At USTEM, high voltages of 6 - 100 kV are available for energy loss spectrometry.
