  • The financial support of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (G. A. O., P. M. M., A. S., M. M.), the Ontario Centre for Materials Research (P. M. M.) and the Office of Naval Research (G.D.S.), and technical assistance with the Rietveld refinement from Bill Harrison and Saim Özkar are gratefully acknowledged.


Communication: Resonant tunneling quantum dot transistors or high-gain heterojunction multiple quantum dot laser arrays are two potential applications of the title compounds. The new materials are composed of periodic arrays of all-space filling β-cages containing atomically precise, organized assemblies of single-size and shape M4X clusters, (see figure).
