Spontaneous self-assembly of a multication nanophase in another multication matrix phase is a promising bottom-up approach to fabricate novel, nanocomposite structures for a range of applications. The first complimentary experimental and theoretical studies are reported to first understand and then control or guide the self-assembly of insulating BaZrO3 nanodots within REBa2Cu3O7–δ (RE = rare earth elements including Y, REBCO) superconducting films. The results have broad implications for fabrication of controlled self-assembled nanostructures for a range of applications via strain-tuning.
