CdSe@CdS dot@rods with diameter around 6 nm and length of either

nm were investigated by X-ray absorption spectroscopy. These heterostructures are

the CdSe nanocrystals used as a seed play key roles in directing the growth of the second

CdSe@CdS heterostructures was investigated at the Cd, S, and Se K-edges by taking

reference compounds. We found that the structural features of dot@rods are

CdSe dot and a CdS rod, both in the wurtzite phase with a high crystallinity of both the

synthesis in promoting the formation of core@shell nanocrystals with very low

a CdSe cubic sphalerite phase with eight pods made of CdS wurtzite phase. Our findings are compared to current models

proposed for the design of functional heterostructures with controlled nanoarchitecture.
