Abstract

A new class of materials that combines quantum confinement with a continuum of three-dimensional delocalized, dispersive electronic states through the infiltration of metal atoms into a three-dimensional colloidal lattice is proposed. The resulting system has a hierarchy of periodicities: the underlying atomic structure resides within the larger-scale periodic colloid, hence called metallatice.
