Nanoscale Interfaces in Heterogeneous Nanostructured Materials (image) DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Share Print E-Mail Caption Cross section of the interface between a lead chalcogenide nanoparticle and its embedding cadmium chalcogenide matrix. When integrated into optoelectronic devices, it is enough to have a single atom in the wrong place at the interface (represented by the glowing blue color) to jeopardize their performance.
