The surface reconstruction in {110} oriented small gold particles is studied by STEM microdiffraction and high resolution TEM images. The well known (1 × 2) surface net is found in the diffraction patterns. Projected potential images show that the surface is composed of (1 × 2) and (1 × 1) regions. The fine structure in the diffraction patterns seems to give some support to the Bonzel and Ferrer model for the (1 × 2) reconstruction.
