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)
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)
