A new type of Au nanoparticle-CdSe ultrathin nanowire network hybrid can be synthesized by chloride-aniontriggered oriented attachment and heterogeneous nucleation growth processes, as demonstrated by Shu-Hong Yu and co-workers on page 97. The efficient charge separation at the Au–CdSe hetero-nanostructure interface leads to an obvious enhancement in photoconductivity compared to a pure CdSe ultrathin nanowire network.
