Abstract

original image

Sacrificial core–shell nanowire precursors can be readily shape-transformed into semiconductor nanoribbon materials by a combination of bottom-up and top-down procedures, as described by F. Patolsky et al. in their Communication on page 11298 ff. This unexpected nanowire-to-nanoribbon transformation process allows the synthesis of superflexible nanoribbons of desired dimension, shape, and chemical composition.
