In this work we address the challenge of furthering our understanding of the driving forces responsible for the metal-metal interactions in industrially relevant bimetallic nanocatalysts, by taking a comparative approach to the atomic scale characterization of two core-shell nanorod systems (AuPd and AuRh). Using aberration-corrected scanning transmission(More)
We introduce a novel empirical model for the adhesion of Pd clusters on the MgO{100} substrate. The new model corrects the known bias of previous models toward structures with large interfaces with the substrate due to the failure to account for the so-called "metal-on-top" effect, i.e., the enhancement of the adhesion due to the presence of other metal(More)
