Silica-coated gold nanoparticles were assembled on carbon nanotubes by polymer wrapping and layer-by-layer assembly (see Figure). The procedure was applied to ordered arrays of vertically aligned nanotubes, resulting in parallel nanotubes of compact nanoparticle monolayers for potential use in photonics.
