TEM Image of CZTS Nanocrystal

Caption: This transmission electron microscope image shows a single nanocrystal of the semiconductor CZTS dissolved in an organic solvent. The nanocrystal is faintly visible in the center of the photo, shaped like a table-tennis paddle. The CZTS was produced by University of Utah researchers using an old microwave oven. University of Oregon researchers made the image for their Utah colleagues.
