Abstract: The conductance of atomic-size wires generated by mechanical stretching is determined by the preferred atomic structure, and atomistic descriptions are essential to interpret the quantum transport behavior of metal nanostructures. Here, we present a thorough analysis of real-time in situ high resolution transmission electron microscopy studies of atomic-size metal nanowires (NWs). By associating careful image processing with image simulation, we have been able to derive detailed information of the atomic arrangement evolution of rod-like NWs. This shows that the atomic resolution imaging can provide quantitative information of the atomic-size NW structure.
