A universal mechanism for helical ribbon formation through nanoscale geometric asymmetry and surface forces is described by Alfred J. Crosby, Todd Emrick, Gregory M. Grason and co-workers on page 6703. It allows for the creation of helices from a range of organic and inorganic materials, such as fluorescent quantum dot nanoparticles (NPs). These NP helices are mechanically robust, highly stretchable, and display spring-like characteristics, offering promise towards the creation of three-dimensional, stretchable NP-based devices.
