Nanorods Gain Gold Tips

Abstract:
Researchers from Hebrew University in Israel have devised a way to cause semiconductor nanocrystals and tiny amounts of gold to self-assemble into nanoscale dumbbells, chains and tetrapods. The rods and tetrapods could eventually serve as ultra-small transistors, memory elements, light-emitting elements and sensors in nanoelectronic and optoelectronic circuitry, according to the researchers.
