Electron tomography is an important tool to investigate nanoassemblies in three dimensions. As reported by Sara Bals and co-workers on page 84, the complete electron tomography approach is optimized to quantify the number of particles in the assembly. The image shows a 3D reconstruction of a spherical self-assembly of gold nanoparticles. The background consists of false-colored 2D projection images that are used for the reconstruction.
