Gold/double-cable copolymer/gold multisegmented nanorods were prepared electrochemically via a template-based method. These "bulk heterojunction" nanorods showed photoconductivity providing us with a platform to study photoinduced charge separation/transport at the nanointerface and begin to think about the rational design of nanoscale solar cells based on such structures.
