Nanoeutectic phase reaction covers the fundamental study of a chemical and physical reaction of multiple phases at the nanoscale. Here, we report the direct visualization of phase-reaction dynamics in Au/GaAs nanowires (NWs) using four-dimensional (4D) electron microscopy. The NW phase reactions were initiated with a pump laser pulse, while the following dynamics in the Au/GaAs NW was probed by a precisely time-delayed electron pulse. Single-pulse imaging reveals that the cubic zinc-blende NW...[Show more]
