Scientists watch 'artificial atoms' assemble into perfect lattices with many uses

Menlo Park, CA (SPX) Aug 07, 2017

Some of the world’s tiniest crystals are known as “artificial atoms” because they can organize themselves into structures that look like molecules, including “superlattices” that are potential building blocks for novel materials.

Now scientists from the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have made the first observation of these nanocrystals
