Silver nanoplates, scanning electron micrograph (SEM). These silver nanoplates are lined with silver oxy salt nanoparticles along the edges. These nanostructures were grown at Argonne National Laboratory, Illinois, USA, under irradiation by high-energy X-rays, which allowed scientists to watch them grow in real time. This research was carried out at Argonne's Advanced Photo Source, the Center Funding Nanoscale Materials, and the Electron Microscopy Center. Photographed on 15 August 2013.
