Three component nanoparticle superlattices that are isostructural with binary ionic and intermetallic compounds are obtained by co-crystallization of multi-component nanoparticles (see figure). Self-assembly of multicomponent nanoparticles greatly extends the combinations of possible materials types which can be intermixed on the nanoscale.
