Project

Characterisation and modeling of the initial growth and stability of anisotropic Au and Au/Ag nanoparticles at the atomic scale.

The overall goal of this project is to characterise and simulate the growth and stability of anisotropic Au and Au/Ag nanocrystals at the atomic scale. In order to reach this final objective, our intermediate technical goals are:• To experimentally determine the p osition and chemical nature of each individual atom in anisotropic Au and Au/Ag NP's.• To develop a reactive force field required for the atomistic simulations.
