An Investigation of the Surface Structure of Nanoparticulate Systems Using Analytical Electron Microscopes Corrected for Spherical Aberration

The surface area to volume ratio of a particle increases with decreasing diameter and this can have profound implications for the case of nanoparticles less than ten nanometres in size. The large proportion of atoms at, or near, surfaces, combined with the need to minimize the overall Gibb's free en...
