Title: 3D Bragg coherent diffractive imaging of five-fold multiply twinned gold nanoparticle

Abstract

The formation mechanism of five-fold multiply twinned nanoparticles has been a long-term topic because of their geometrical incompatibility. So, various models have been proposed to explain how the internal structure of the multiply twinned nanoparticles accommodates the constraints of the solid-angle deficiency. Here, we investigate the internal structure, strain field and strain energy density of 600 nm sized five-fold multiply twinned gold nanoparticles quantitatively using Bragg coherent diffractive imaging, which is suitable for the study of buried defects and three-dimensional strain distribution with great precision. Our study reveals that the strain energy density in five-fold multiply twinned gold nanoparticles is an order of magnitude higher than that of the single nanocrystals such as an octahedron and triangular plate synthesized under the same conditions. This result indicates that the strain developed while accommodating an angular misfit, although partially released through the introduction of structural defects, is still large throughout the crystal.
