Padgett and Prof. Leroy Cronin Cover Picture: Directed Assembly of Inorganic Polyoxometalate-based Micrometer-Scale Tubular Architectures by Using Optical Control (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 51/2012) Angewandte Chemie International Edition 51
The directed assembly and growth of polyoxometalate-based inorganic tube architectures using a computer-controlled laser-based system is described by L. Cronin, M. J. Padgett, et al. in their Communication on page 12754 ff. The picture shows the directed fusion of two tubes, colored red and green, on a microscope slide with the focus of the laser shown in red; the resulting network is made of hollow tubes that can act as microscopic flow channels.
