First atomic-scale real-time movies of platinum nanocrystal growth in liquids

Berkeley Scientists Create Graphene Liquid Cells for Electron Microscopy Studies of Nanocrystal Formation [ Watch the Video ] They won't be coming soon to a multiplex near you, but movies showing the growth of platinum nanocrystals at the atomic-scale in real-time have blockbuster potential. A team of scientists with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley has developed a technique for encapsulating liquids of nanocrystals between layers of graphene so that chemical reactions in the liquids can be imaged with an electron microscope. With this technique, movies can be made that provide unprecedented direct observations of physical, chemical and biological phenomena that take place in liquids on the nanometer scale. "Watching real-time chemical reactions in liquids at the atomic-scale is a dream for chemists and physicists," says Jungwon Park, a member of the team who holds joint appointments with Berkeley Lab's Materials Sciences Division and UC B
