Gd atoms ‘hop about’ in nanopeapods

Researchers in Japan have directly observed the motion of gadolinium atoms inside a nanopeapod. The scientists, from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Nagoya University and Meijo University, used high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) to identify the rapid movement of the atoms for the first time.
