Schematic representation of an aggregate structure in 2D. (a) The aggregate is composed of z primary particles of mean diameter, d p. (b) The dark circles represent average minimum path p of fractal dimension d min. (c) The grey lines represent connective path of mass s and connectivity dimension c. The smaller solid grey circles represent end/branch points (Refs. 2 and 18, and 19).
SAXS/USAXS data for the silicon nano-particle with binders in grey circles fitted with Eq. (16) (in black). Guinier exponential decay is shown in grey dash lines for the primary and fractal structure levels.
SEM micrographs of silicon nano-particle aggregates with binder. The scales in the micrographs are 10 μm and 500 nm in (a) and (b) respectively.
Fitting parameters using the unified function (Refs. 2, 18, and 19, and 23).
