Electron Diffraction Study of Pentagonal Cross-Sections Nanowires


Article Preview

The selected area electron diffraction patterns and structure of pentagonal cross-section nanowires reported for silver are commented and interpreted in is work. We show that they are closely related to a decahedron-base structure.
