Designer nanojunctions: orienting shaped nanoparticles within polymer thin-film nanocomposites

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate that polymer-grafted metal nanoparticles of various shapes and dimensions self-assemble into arrays of string-like superstructures upon phase separation within a matrix polymer. Interparticle orientation within these nanocomposites can be dictated by the chain length of the grafted polymer.
