Synthesis of Square Gadolinium-Oxide Nanoplates

In this paper, we report a colloidal synthesis of high-quality, square, plate-shaped Gd<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> nanocrystals. These nanoplates are single crystalline with a thickness of the Gd<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> unit-cell edge length, approaching the lower limit of crystal growth.
