Growth and shape stability of Cu-Ni core-shell nanoparticles: an atomistic perspective

Abstract

Growth and shape stability of bi-metallic cubic Cu-Ni nanoparticles are studied by using atomic-level simulations. The cubic nanocrystals coated by an ultra-thin Cu layer can be readily obtained when Ni cubic nanoparticles are used as the seed. At elevated temperatures, the Cu seed with extending Ni branches preserves its octopod shape compared to the Ni seed with extending Cu branches.
