Oriented attachment determines a shape of nanoparticles in gas phase

Until two decades ago, the process of crystallization from a supersaturated solution was assumed to proceed exclusively by molecule-by-molecule addition. However, some recent pioneering theoretical and experimental studies have revealed that crystals can grow by some other,

New materials challenge well-established theory of crystal growth

The classical theory of crystal growth was established over a century ago and is still used today to describe the formation of crystals with highly symmetrical shapes. This theory explains that crystals start as a single seed
