Direct observation of nanoparticle multiple-ring pattern formation during droplet evaporation with dark-field microscopy.

Abstract

Controllable protocols towards nanoparticle self-assembly are important for applications of functional nanomaterials. Evaporation is a simple yet effective method to realize a gold nanoparticle ordered self-assembly, but until now, little attention has been paid to viewing the corresponding assembly process. Herein, with the help of dark-field microscopy… (More)
