Description: This is a SEM image of silver nanoplates, which are decorated with silver oxy salt nanoparticles along the edges. These nanostructures were grown under irradiation of high-energy X-rays, which allowed scientists to "watch" them grow in real time.
Keywords: silver • silver oxy salt • X-ray • growth • advanced photon source • APS • micrograph
