As we will discuss later, our STEM images do show the existence of dimers or trimers, indicating the possible molecular linkage between QDs.
In addition, dimers have more dipole resonance components than trimers and quadrumors; in addition, dimer arrays present more enhancements than singular dimers.
PE normally occurs in the form of hexamers in the aqueous solution as found in phycobilisomes, while PC and APC mainly exist in trimers (Sun et al., 2009).
