3D RECONSTRUCTIONS OF INDIVIDUAL NANOPARTICLES

3D RECONSTRUCTIONS OF INDIVIDUAL NANOPARTICLES

Researchers at the Centre for Nanoparticle Research within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS, South Korea), in collaboration with Dr. Hans Elmlund Associate Investigator to the ARC Centre of Excellence in Advanced Molecular Imaging at Monash University in Australia and Dr. Peter Ercius at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Molecular Foundry in the USA, have reported a new analytic methodology that can resolve the 3D structure of individual nanoparticles with atomic-level resolution. The 3D atomic positions of individual nanoparticles can be extracted with a precision of 0.02 nm—six times smaller than the smallest atom: hydrogen. In other words, this high-resolution method detects individual atoms and how they are arranged within a nanoparticle.
