Abstract

Abstract Previous work suggested that 5 nm Mo cubes, formed from a supersaturated vapor, self-organize in the vapor into larger cubes which are 3 × 3 × 3 arrangements of the smaller cubes. Here new experimental results are described that provide an understanding of the narrow size distribution necessary for self-arrangement and the observed bcc structure of the particles. An explanation of the cubic shape of the particles and a calculation for the energy decrease due to self-arrangement are also presented.
