NanoCrystal is a novel web-based crystallographic tool that creates nanoparticle coordinates from any material crystal structure.
NanoCrystal is a novel web-based crystallographic tool that creates nanoparticle models from any crystal structure guided by their preferred equilibrium shape under standard conditions according to the Wulff morphology (crystal habit). Users can upload a cif file, define the Miller indices and their corresponding minimum surface energies according to the Wulff construction of a particular crystal, and specify the size of the nanocrystal. As a result, the nanoparticle is constructed and visualized, and the coordinates of the atoms are output to the user.
