About the lecture

Nanoparticles are in a regime between the atomic and macroscopic scale and exhibit peculiar properties in between both worlds. A full 3D morphological and compositional characterization of nanoparticles is a necessity of understanding their properties-structure relationship. A powerful way of studying processes at the nanoscale are in situ measurements allowing, for example, to follow heat-induced morphological and compositional changes in time. In this talk, we present how such transformations of metal nanoparticles can be followed in 3D using electron tomography.
