Strained Gold Nanoparticle

The Moiré-fringe image of a 30 nm decahedral gold nanoparticle shows five-fold rotational symmetry (black fringes) that results from serial twinning and shows the internal distortion of the atomic structure (indicated by the gradual change of the color fringes) that accommodates this unique geometry. The Moiré-fringe image was extracted from the original TEM image taken on the spherical-aberration-corrected Tecnai F20 at the CEMES-CNRS in Toulouse, France. Such particles have tremendous potential as components of nanoscale plasmonic devices for imaging, cancer therapy, and biosensing among other applications.

Lighting up the World

Incandescent light bulbs are very inefficient in transforming energy into light. Since about 20% of the world’s total electricity consumption is used for lighting, a new and more efficient light source has to be developed. One solution is solid-state lighting, which employs light-emitting diodes (LEDs) made from semiconducting materials. The image shows the cathodoluminescence (CL) from an LED excited by the electron beam of an FEI Quanta 250. CL imaging helps to understand the properties of these LEDs and gives valuable insight into prevalent defects, such as the ring-shaped defect in the image, in order to improve the devices.
