Recently, significant research efforts have been made to develop complex nanostructures to provide more sophisticated control over the optical and electronic properties of nanomaterials. However, there are only a handful of semiconductors that allow control over their geometry via simple chemical processes. Herein, we present a molecularly seeded synthesis of a complex nanostructure, {SiC} tetrapods, and report on their structural and optical properties. The {SiC} tetrapods exhibit narrow line width photoluminescence at wavelengths spanning the visible to near-infrared spectral range. Synthesized from low-toxicity, earth abundant elements, these tetrapods are a compelling replacement for technologically important quantum optical materials that frequently require toxic metals such as Cd and Se. This previously unknown geometry of {SiC} nanostructures is a compelling platform for biolabeling, sensing, spintronics, and optoelectronics.

Epitaxial {ZnO} thin films were grown on single crystalline Au microplates from an aqueous solution at 90 {°C.} The composite structures were approximately 100 ?m wide. The epitaxial {ZnO} films were smooth, continuous, and several micrometers thick. We examined the epitaxial relationship between the {ZnO} and Au through scanning electron microscopy, electron backscatter diffraction, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, and electron diffraction and demonstrated control over the resulting film morphology through the kinetics of growth. An epitaxial relationship of {ZnO[11?00](0002)?Au[21?1?](111)} was dominant in the structures.
