Gold Nanospikes: the future of surfaces?
Excess Surface Energy at the Tips of Gold Nanospikes: From Experiment to Modeling.
Recently we have included to our database a new Project of Assam University of India. The main goal of this project is to reduce surface free energy by Physicochemical aspects of anisotropic gold nanostructures. Physicochemical aspects of anisotropic gold nanostructures have been of considerable interest due to intrinsic shape-dependent phenomena that open up newer perspectives from nanoscale electromagnetism to basic thermodynamics since gold has a highly symmetric face-centered cubic (fcc) structure and usually tends to afford a spherical geometry to reduce surface free energy.
