Nanoparticle Crystal Used to Control Light

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A clathrate colloidal crystal has been created by connecting nanoparticles using DNA. One potential application for the novel crystal structures is the control of light, which could lead to development of materials that could change colors or patterns on demand, or block certain wavelengths of light while amplifying others.
