Iron-Gold core-shell nanocrystals : A question of balance

When forming iron-gold nanocrystals by nano-epitaxy, a CEMES team and its collaborators have just shown how the delicate balance between elasticity and surface energy can control the nature of the gold facets at the surface by promoting a Fe @ Au core-shell distribution. This work is published in Nanoletters.
