In this in situ study, details of the coalescence of Pt nanoparticles encapsulated within carbon nanotubes are investigated whilst under electron irradiation in aberration corrected transmission electron microscopy. Coalescence occurs via the direct attachment of atoms on the surface, particle reorientation and relaxation. This journal is
