Abstract

High-angle annular dark-field (HAADF) imaging technique in the scanning transmission electron microscope has been exploited to study self-assembled multilayer structures of Au/Ag nanoparticles. The HAADF image intensity depends monotonically on the mass and thickness of the sample. Various film thickness between one to four monolayers can be easily distinguished by evaluating the contrast.
