Two silicon nanoparticles with approximately 70-nm radii imaged by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) by Chris Perrey in Professor Barry Carters research group at the University of Minnesota. Similar particles and much smaller were evaluated mechanically by graduate student Bill Mook in Professor
