Nanorods: Novel Nanorod Precipitate Formation in Neodymium and Titanium Codoped Bismuth Ferrite (Adv. Funct. Mater. 6/2013)
On page 683, Ian MacLaren and co-workers report the discovery of novel Nd-oxide nanorod precipitates in Nd/Ti co-doped bismuth ferrite. The 3D structure of these unique nanoscale objects is reconstructed using a combination of atomic resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy imaging and spectroscopy with density functional calculations, which also reveal novel electronic properties around the nanorods.
