The internal structure of monodisperse CdS particles was investigated by high-resolution electron microscopy of thin sections prepared with an ultramicrotome. High-resolution images of the thin sections clearly revealed the arrangements and the crystallographic orientations of subcrystals as components of the particles. It was found that the central part of a particle was composed of randomly oriented small subcrystals about 10 nm in diameter, while near the surface of the particle, relatively large subcrystals about 50 nm in maximum width were observed. Furthermore, stacking faults and twins on the {1 1 1} planes were observed in the sections.
