Relating microstructures imaged by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to specific growth mechanisms requires imaging of both the surface microtopography on crystal faces and its corresponding microstructure in the bulk crystal. Pt-C replicas of as-grown surfaces are ideally suited to this task, as they provide a high-resolution, nearly three-dimensional image of surface topography that can be correlated with microstructures visible in sections at high angle to the as-grown surface… CONTINUE READING
