Characterization of the Morphology of Faceted Particles by Transmission Electron Microscopy
Shirley Turner, David S. Bright
Faceting in a polyhedral rutile particle was modeled from transmission electron microscopy images. A relatively new double-tilt, rotate transmission electron microscope (TEM) sample holder was used to manipulate the particle. Using this holder, it was possible to align the c axis of the particle along one of the axes of the sample holder. This alignment allowed images to be obtained of the particle in several orientations around its c axis. Comparison of dimensions and angles obtained to those obtained for hypothetical models of the particle gives information about its likely prismatic and pyramidal faceting. This approach to facet modeling is useful for more complete determination of the faceting in individual euhedral particles using transmission electron microscopy.
