Modification of silver iodide particles caused by a flow of electrons

A crystalline powder of AgI has been synthesized using an exchange reaction of aqueous solutions of AgNO3 and KI. The size and shape of the crystals are determined with the help of scanning electron microscopy. It is shown that nanocrystalline silver particles (30–70 nm) are formed at the surface of monocrystalline AgI particles (500–2000 nm) under the action of a focused bunch of electrons.
