Precise control over dimension of nanocrystals is critical to tune the properties for various applications. However, the traditional control through experimental optimization is slow, tedious and time consuming. Herein a robust deep neural network-based regression algorithm has been developed for precise prediction of length, width, and aspect ratios of semiconductor nanorods (NRs). Given there is limited experimental data available (28 samples), a Synthetic Minority Oversampling Technique for regression (SMOTE-REG) is employed first for data generation. Deep neural network is further applied to develop regression model which demonstrated the well performed prediction on both the original and generated data with a similar distribution. The prediction model is further validated with additional experimental data, showing accurate prediction results. Additionally, Local Interpretable Model-Agnostic Explanations (LIME) is used to interpret the weight for each sample, corresponding to its importance towards the target dimension, which is well validated by experimental observations.
