(Color online) Theoretical reproduction of the size dependence of the (a) mean lattice strain of Ag and Au nanostructures with scattered data 1–5 being taken from Refs. 55–59 and (b) the Au-4f and Ag-3d core level shifts (binding energy) with data 1–3 taken from Refs. 10 and 11. The K on the X-axis is reduced size and equals approximately the number of atoms lined along the radius of a nanosphere or a nanowire or across the thickness of a thin film.
(Color online) Theoretical reproduction of the size-enhanced elastic modulus (energy density) of (a) Ag nanostructures with the scattered Data 1-6 being taken from Refs. 2 and 60, and 61 and (b) Au nanofilms with Data 1–2 from Ref. 61. The NF, NP, and NW represent for the nanofilm, particle, and wire.
(Color online) Theoretical reproduction of the size-depressed T m (atomic cohesive energy) of (a) Ag nanostructures with Data 1–3 from Refs. 7 and 62, and 63 and (b) Au nanoparticles with Data 1–4 from Refs. 64–67.
