Recent advances in strategies for synthesizing nanoparticles—such as semiconductor quantum dots, magnets and noble-metal clusters—have enabled the precise control of composition, size, shape, crystal structure, and surface chemistry. The distinct properties of the resulting nanometre-scale building blocks can be harnessed in assemblies with new collective… CONTINUE READING
