TEM and STEM of AgNPs. (a) TEM micrographs at lower magnification (left) and higher magnification (center); STEM image in negative mode (right). These images clearly show the presence of two types of particles: the less dense iron cores of ferritin and the more dense AgNPs (see Figure 3 for EDX analysis). (b) Size distribution of the (126 AgNPs analyzed).
