Amorphous to Crystal Conversion as a Mechanism Governing the Structure of Luminescent YVO4:Eu Nanoparticles
We have shown that crystalline YVO4:Eu nanoparticles synthesized in aqueous solution follow a non-classical nucleation mechanism. This originates from the formation of a transient nanostructured amorphous netwok, which templates the final structure of the crystalline nanoparticles.
Osmotically induced deformation of capsid-like icosahedral vesicles
We have uncovered peculiar buckling transitions in icosahedral catanionic vesicles that trigger the release of any encapsulated solutes. This provides a better understanding of the unique morphological and mechanical properties of these vesicles.
In-plane distribution in mixtures of cationic and anionic surfactants
Combining small-angle neutron scattering and Monte-Carlo simulations, we have shown that catanionic bilayers present a nanometric-range order, but no superstructures, even at the preferential ratios that we have evidenced previously.
