Title: Flying cubes (the image was competing in the NanoArt competition at the Hot Nano Topics, Portoroz, May 2008).

Low magnification TEM image of PbSe nanocrystals deposited on a thin carbon foil.
Crystal size: 8-20 nm. Due to their small size the crystals are virtually transparent for electrons. The amplitude contrast is increased at the rims of the
crystals making visible their true 3D shape.
