Title: Effect of lattice mismatch and shell thickness on strain in core@shell nanocrystals

Abstract

Bimetallic nanocrystals with core@shell architectures are versatile particles. Geometric phase analysis of TEM images and atomistic simulations are coupled to reveal the lattice relaxation as a function of lattice mismatch and shell thickness.
