Layer-by-layer manipulation of anisotropic nanoblocks: orientation-switched superlattices through orthogonal stacking of a and c directions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Nanometer-scale switching of the crystallographic orientation enables production of novel superlattices for exploration of new functions. Elaborate multilayered architectures of Mn3O4 nanocuboids were constructed by a convective self-assembly process. The nanometric cuboids were accumulated into orientation-switched superlattices on micrometric scales by controlling the a and c directions of the tetragonal crystal periodically. The orthogonal stacking of the tetragonal nanoblocks was achieved through the layer-by-layer manipulation process of two types of 2D arrays with different orientations.
