AbstractElectron diffraction has been performed on small unsupported Ag particles with mean sizes between 1 nm and 4 nm. Particles are produced by inert gas nucleation and are examined, in situ, in a molecular beam. The results clearly show a change from fcc structure at larger sizes to MTP structure below 3 nm. Icosahedral and decahedral structures co-exist in the beam in roughly equal proportions. © 1989 Springer-Verlag.
