Novel Probe Beam Lets Scientists Observe Gold Nanoparticle Clusters for the First Time

Description Novel Beam Lets Scientists Observe Gold Nanoparticle Clusters for the First Time Researcher from University of Birmingham have developed a novel probe beam technique that for the first time lets scientists use an electron microscope to observe the actual atomic structure of gold nanoparticle clusters. The technique lets scientists of a 20-atom gold cluster.

The team, led by Richard Palmer, Professor of Experimental Physics and Head of the Nanoscale Physics Research Laboratory at the University of Birmingham, is trying to accelerate the production rate of these very accurately defined nano-objects to speed their commercial use in pharmaceuticals, perfumery, fine chemicals, oil refining, food, and in clean energy.
