Structural rearrangements in small Pt crystals, which were initiated by the incident electron beam, have been studied in real time with a 400 kV high-resolution electron microscope equipped with TV image viewing and videorecording facilities. The phenomena of crystal growth, particle coalescence and atomic clouds above particular surfaces were recorded at the atomic level and have been analysed using frame-by-frame playback facilities.
