Shaping the future of nanocrystals
Date:8/22/2014

a transmission electron microscope (TEM) for an extended period of time, enabling in situ observations of single nanoparticle growth trajectories.

"With the liquid cells, we're able to use TEMs to observe the growth of nanocrystals that remarkably resemble nanocrystals synthesized in flasks," Zheng says. "We found that the growth rates of all low index facets are similar until the {100} facets stop growing. The {110} facets will continue to grow until they reach two neighboring {100} facets, at which point they form the edge of a cube whose corners will be filled in by the continued growth of {111} facets. The arrested growth of the {100} facets that triggers this process is determined by ligand mobility on the {100} facets, which is much lower than on the {110} and {111} facets."

For their observations, Zeng and her collaborators were able to use several of the TEMs at Berkeley Lab's National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM), a DOE Office of Science user facility, including the TEAM 0.5 instrument, the world's most powerful TEM. In addition, they were able to use a K2-IS camera from Gatan, Inc., which can capture electron images directly onto a CMOS sensor at 400 frames per second (fps) with 2K-by-2K pixel resolution.

"The K2-IS camera can also be configured to capture images at up to 1600 fps with appropriate scaling of the field of view, which is critical for observing particles that are moving dynamically in the field of view," says lead author Liao, a member of Zheng's research group. "The elimination of the traditional scintillation process during image detection results in significant improvement in both sensitivity and resolution. High resolution imaging is also facilitated by the thin silicon nitride membranes of our liquid cell window, which is about 10 nanometers thick per membrane."

The lower ligand mobility and arrested growth of selected facets experimentally observed by Zheng and Liao, were supported by ab
