Researchers grow new nanocrystals of given shape

16 Jun '20
Scientists at the Krasnoyarsk-based Kirensky Institute of Physics in Siberia have come up with a new method of obtaining iron silicide nanocrystals shaped as rectangular and triangular nanodimensional plates. The results of the research have been published in English in CrystEngComm.

Nanostructures developed in such a way could be used to make nanowires and nanodimensional electric contacts; they could also lay the foundation for the synthesis of brand new materials.

To achieve their goal, the researchers coated silicon substrates with gold. Iron and silicon were then deposited on the prepared surface in a range of proportions. In this experiment, the scientific team learned to control the growth of new 30-1,500nm sized crystals of given shapes.
