7_18/2011Molecular Electronics: Large Array of Sub-10-nm Single-Grain Au Nanodots for use in Nanotechnology (Small 18/2011)

The cover shows an array of sub-10-nm single crystal Au nanodots fabricated by e-beam lithography and thermally annealed. Each nanodot corresponds to a transmission electron microscopy (TEM) image with atomic resolution. Ferrocene molecules are assembled on top of these nanodots and observed with nanometric resolution using electron diffraction X-ray (EDX) and high-angle annular dark-field (HAADF) TEM microscopy. Such an array can be used for molecular electronics or potentially for many other future applications in nanotechnology. For more information, please read the Full Paper “Large Array of Sub-10-nm Single-Grain Au Nanodots for use in Nanotechnology” by N. Clément and co-workers beginning on page 2607.
