Gold nanoparticles have unusual properties, which scientists are seeking to put to use in a range of technologies. Some of the most interesting properties emerge when nanoparticles are brought close together. But a major challenge has been finding ways to assemble these bits of gold while controlling the three-dimensional shape of their arrangement. In a new article, researchers outline a new technique.
