Nanogold Does Not Glitter, but its Future Looks Bright

If gold is created in small enough chunks, it turns red, blue, yellow and other colors, says Chris Kiely, professor of materials science and engineering at Lehigh and director of the new Nanocharacterization Laboratory in Lehigh’s Center for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology. Kiely explores the properties of “nanogold,” or gold particles so tiny that they contain only hundreds or even tens of atoms and must be measured in nanometers. (One nm is equal to one one-billionth of a meter.) “As everyone knows,” says Kiely, “normal bulk gold is shiny, it is gold in color, it is inert, and it conducts electricity.” Recently, Lehigh’s microscopy facilities received a state-of-the-art boost with the purchase of a new JEOL transmission electron microscope (TEM) fitted with an aberration-correction device, along with a separate aberration-correction device that will be added to a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) that Lehigh bought 10 years ago.
