Abstract Nanowires can be fabricated from bismuth nanoclusters. The structure of bismuth nanoclusters of 40-60 nm diameter has been observed by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and matched to multislice image simulations for B = [-2, 2, 0, -1] and B = [1, 0, -1, 0]. The hexagonal structure matches that of bulk bismuth embedded in a 5 nm thick shell of ß-Bi2O3.
