(Figure Presented) In the nanosphere: The cooperative self-assembly of CdSe/ZnS nanoparticles and an amphiphilic block copolymer leads to unique spherical assemblies. In these assemblies, the nanoparticles (green circles) are located at the interface between an outer polymer shell and an inner polymer core (see picture).
