Visualization of the Atomic Structure of the Au68 Gold Nanoparticle (image) Academy of Finland Share Print E-Mail Caption This is a visualization of the atomic structure of the Au68 gold nanoparticle determined by electron microscopy. The colored spheres denote gold atoms in different crystal shells around the central axis (red). The background shows a collection of real-life electron microscopy data from which the single structure shown was reconstructed. Credit Copyright Maia Azubel, Stanford University.
