Heat treatment tunes conduction for nanocrystal assemblies

Abstract:
Researchers from the NMRC, Ireland, and the University of Hamburg, Germany, have used heat treatment to alter the electrical properties of an array of metal nanocrystals. The assembly moved from acting as an insulator to near-metallic behaviour as the team increased the anneal temperature.
