Computer-simulated electron diffraction patterns of small particles are investigated. The patterns show forbidden reflections which are found to be directly correlated with the shape of the particles. Therefore the study of these reflections is suggested as a new possibility for determining shape and crystallography of metal particles using single-particle diffraction techniques.
