Abstract

original image

The growth mechanism, which plays a vital role in the rational design and precise fabrication of heterogeneous nanoparticles, can be unveiled by exploiting single-particle scattering spectra, as shown by T. Kang, J. Yi, and co-workers in their Communication on page 4633 ff. Three patterns of scattering spectra for individual gold/polystyrene dimeric nanoparticles are readily differentiated, and overgrowth mechanisms that correspond to each scattering spectrum are proposed.
