Abstract

Small metal and semiconductor particles with a size of a few nanometers are one of the important systems in modern materials science. Nanoparticles have found applications in many fields, ranging from catalysis to magnetic storage. In the present work, we discuss some of the methods to characterize the structure of nanoparticles using electron microscopy. We also discuss some of the exciting novel applications of nanoparticles in nanoelectronics and nanophotonics. Finally, we show that nanoparticles play an important role in producing atmospheric pollutants.
