Title: Going Straight: The Growth of Nanorods: From Twisty Nanochains

Abstract

Berkeley Lab researchers at the National Center for Electron Microscopy recorded real-time observations of nanocrystal growth that support the theory of nanoparticles acting like artificial atoms. This electron microscopy movie shows nanoparticles becoming attached to form twisty chains that eventually align and attach end-to-end to become elongated nanowires. (Movie courtesy of Haimei Zheng)
