  Recent studies of ultrafast electron microscopy (UEM) techniques show the use of short bunches of relativistic electrons are promising for the development of a new instrument for imaging samples of various materials. Compared to conventional electron microscopes, the main advantage of UEMs with the electron energy of a few MeV is the possibility to study thick samples. We will discuss the progress of UEM design to date, the principal challenges on the way to a high resolution, and possible methods for their mitigation including the design of low-aberration magnetic optics, RF and mechanical subsystems with high stability, and precise collimation of electrons scattered in the samples.
