Some of the world’s tiniest crystals are known as ‘artificial atoms’ because they can organize themselves into structures that look like molecules, including ‘superlattices’ that are potential building blocks for novel materials. Now scientists have made the first observation of these nanocrystals rapidly forming superlattices while they are themselves still growing.
