Abstract

Small metal particles have peculiar chemical and physical properties and they are especially important in catalysis. The structural characterization of small particles is of primary importance for the understanding of structure-catalytic activity relationships. Coherent electron nanodiffraction (CEND) patterns from nano particles contain information about the particle size, shape, structure and defects, etc. As part of an on-going program of STEM characterization of supported catalysts, the paper reports some preliminary results of CEND study of Ag nano particles, deposited in situ in a UHV STEM instrument. The experimental results with full dynamical simulations are compared in order to extract information about the shape of Ag nano particles.
