In the present study, nano platinum particles were produced by ball milling process. The lattice strains in platinum (Pt) powders produced by milling have been analysed by X-ray powder diffraction. The lattice strain (𝜀) and Debye-Waller factor (𝐵) are determined from the half-widths and integrated intensities of the Bragg reflections. In Pt, the Debye–Waller factor is found to increase with lattice strain. From the correlation between the strain and effective Debye–Waller factor, the Debye–Waller factors for zero strain have been estimated for Pt. The variation of energy of vacancy formation as a function of lattice strain has been studied.
