Role of LIgand Packing Frustration in BCC superlattices of colloidal nanocrystals
In order to understand the role of ligand packing frustration in Body Centered Cubic (BCC) superlattices of colloidal nanocrystals, Brian Goodfellow, Yixuan Yu and Christian Bosoy provided a model to calculate and compare the entropic penalty for ligand packing frustration in FCC and BCC superlattices, and show why ligand packing frustration always favors BCC structure. This work was done in collaboration with Dr. Smilgies at Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) and was recently published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters and selected as an ACS Editors' Choice article.
