Nucleation growth and organization of nanoparticles (spheres, rods, tubes, multipods...)

The formation of nanoparticles and associated materials through wet processes is a fascinating problem where physics and chemistry really meet .  Our goal is to develop  a large panel of experimental and theoretical approaches to improve the global understanding. These are our recent news :
