Nanofold network self-assembles

Abstract:
Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, US, and the Christian Albrechts University of Kiel, Germany, have solved the mystery of how nanostructured networks form when transition metal dichalcogenide crystals are bombarded with metal atoms. It turns out that the structures self-assemble when the top layer of the crystal deforms to relieve compressive stress.
