Self-organizations of inorganic nanocrystals in 1D, 2D and 3D superlattices are described. In the latter case, supra-crystals with face-centred-cubic (fcc) structure are demonstrated. Collective properties due to the nanocrystal organization are described. These properties are either intrinsic or due to dipolar interactions.
