Based on the exact crystal structure of decahedral and icosahedral particles, high energy electron diffraction patterns and image profiles have been derived for various high symmetry orientations of the particles with respect to the incident beam. These results from a basis for the identification of small metal particle structures with advanced methods of transmission electron microscopy.
