Silicon Nanoparticles (Large Group)

Caption: This transmission electron microscopy image shows spherical silicon nanoparticles about 10 nanometers in diameter. These particles, created in a UB lab, react with water to quickly produce hydrogen, according to new UB research. Additional images of the particles are available at http://www.buffalo.edu/news/releases/2013/01/017.html.
