Abstract

original image

What size plate do you want? Semiconducting and plasmonic copper phosphide platelets with sizes tunable from the nanometer to the micrometer scale have been developed, and their photoresponse and photovoltaic activity studied. The size control was achieved by controlling the nucleation density of materials in the reaction system.
