Lattice images with inset Fourier transform from square region for the TiO nanocondensates less than 15 nm in size in sample 2 which was fabricated by PLAL under FR-mode and then dwelling in water for 1 week: a single crystal with corrugated {100} facets and point defects presumably Ti and/or oxygen vacancies indicated by a red arrow), b another single crystal in [011] zone axis showing {100} and {111} facets, c bicrystals with (100) tilt boundary due to coalescence over (100) vicinal surfaces (off by 12.2 degree) viewed edge on in [001] zone axis, d the tilt boundary became healed with a relic dislocation (denoted as T) after electron irradiation for 30 s, e point-count EDX spectrum of the TiO nanoparticle in (a) showing Ti and O counts (50.5 at% of Ti and 49.4 at% of O), with Cu and C peaks from supporting copper grids overlaid with a carbon-coated collodion film
