Title: Type I vs. quasi-type II modulation in CdSe@CdS tetrapods: ramifications for noble metal tipping

Abstract

We report on noble metal tipping of heterostructured nanocrystals (NCs) of CdSe@CdS tetrapods (TPs) as a chemical reaction to manifest energetic differences between type I and quasi-type II heterojunctions.
