A Dynamic View of Nanostructure Growth
Nanostructured materials are key components of present and future microelectronic devices, but building them using bottom-up methods requires a detailed understanding of growth mechanisms.  Here we show how electron microscopy can visualize semiconductor and metal nanostructures during their formation, providing dynamic information that helps to tailor growth precisely and to develop new types of nanostructure.
