Metal particles, usually crystalline, in the nano size range, 1-100 nm, play an important role in materials science. The preparation and organisation of such particles calls for advanced analytical tools to determine size, composition, stability and spatial organisation. TEM techniques play the most important roles in this work. Since more than 25 years researchers at National Center for High Resolution Electron Microscopy, Lund University have developed methods to follow the structure and dynamics of metal particles. This seminar will summarize some of the results, which can be used as a base for future TEM studies using in-situ stages.
