Caption: In this first ever atomic-scale real-time movie of nanocrystal growth in liquid, which was made at TEAM I of the National Center for Electron Microscopy, nanoparticles of platinum move and diffuse freely in liquid to coalesce into crystals along a specific direction. Faceting of the particles is also captured as they evolve into a crystalline shape.
