Abstract

Axial illumination lattice imaging with a high resolution electron microscope has been used to characterise directly the structures of complicated particles of silver and gold found in the early stages of particulate growth. Many of the particles are conveniently classified under a new, broad heading of "polyparticles", indicating their similarity to polycrystals. Whereas the latter are composed of single crystals, the former are constructed from smaller discrete particles (e.g. icosahedral multiply-twinned particles).
