Our work on the cover of Small

last modified Dec 03, 2013 11:21 AM

Our recent article, "Watching single nanoparticles grow in real time through supercontinuum spectroscopy", is highlighted on the inside cover of Small. 

DOI: 10.1002/smll.201300958

A fast dark-field scattering technique capturing full broadband spectra with millisecond time-resolution enables us to monitor the growth or assembly of single nano-objects in situ and in real time. Applying this technique to study the growth of single gold nanorods, together with scanning electron microscopy and finite-difference time-domain simulations, reveals precise quantitative information about gold nanorod growth kinetics.
