Abstract

In a paper entitled "Stripy Nanoparticles Revisited", Lévy and co-workers contest the interpretation of scanning tunneling microscopy images of monolayer protected gold nanoparticles that our group has presented. We show that the two arguments they use are based on flawed assumptions and contradict each other. We also show new evidence for the existence of stripe-like domains on mixed monolayer-coated gold nanoparticles.
