The determination of intrinsic conductivity of nanowires (NWs) is essential to understand the charge transport behaviour involved in hybrid nanocomposites. These high conductive metallic fillers are good candidate to improve electrical properties of composites in aeronautic industry. The main difficulty is often to achieve the combination of both high spatial resolution and information on the physical properties as electrical conductivity. One of the suitable methods to give the desired information is electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) in scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) mode, especially in the low-loss region. This is demonstrated by studying the nickel and gold nanowire.
