Self-Assembling Nanoparticle Composites (2 of 2) (image) DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Share Print E-Mail Caption This AFM phase image shows a 50-nm nanocomposite thin film in lithographically patterned trenches that formed unidirectional nanoparticle arrays over macroscopic distances in just over a minute. The bright circular dots represent the 5 nm gold nanoparticles as illustrated by the schematic.
