Cluster size analysis of two-dimensional order in colloidal gold nanoparticle arrays.


A protocol for cluster size distribution analysis was developed in order to parametrize local two-dimensional (2D) order in a quantitative manner, using mean cluster sizes and fractional hcp cluster formation (fhcp). Cluster size analysis was performed on 2D arrays of Au nanoparticles encapsulated in resorcinarene tetrathiol, which were organized into close… (More)
