In the present work we report a systematic study of roughness and lattice distortion in metallic nanoparticles using High Resolution Electron Microscopy (HREM). Theoretical calculations show that images at only a very limited objective lens defocus, show faithfully the surface roughness. We found also possible to determine real lattice distortions in FCC cubo-octahedral particles.
