Unraveling anisotropic and pulsating etching of ZnO nanorods in hydrochloric acid via correlative electron microscopy
Posted July 21, 2023
An additional Friday publication update! Controlled etching behavior is extremely important to be able to create crystal solids with defined structures and functions. In this newest publication, in situ liquid cell transmission electron microscopy was used to oberserve the dynamic behavior during the pencil shape evolution of a single crystal ZnO nanorod in aqueous hydrochloric acid. The authors used the #PoseidonAX system to observe this etching behavior at pH 2.5. Findings in this paper shed light on the in-depth understanding of wet chemical etching of ionic ceramics for the future design of advanced functional materials and engineering processes.
