Anisometric colloids—which have both nanometer and micrometer dimensions—combine features of their two constituent length scales. Here, using optical microscopy and modeling, the authors find that highly polydisperse anisometric colloids self-assemble into 3D, periodic lattices in a manner hardly inaccessible to nano- or micron-scale colloids.
