Xing Yi Ling (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore)

 


 

Alexander Govorov (Ohio University, USA)

 

The symposium will focus on optically-active hybrid nanomaterials composed of semiconductors, metals, dielectrics, polymers, biomolecules, etc.  Fabrication methods involved here include top-down and bottom-up approaches. The central issues to be addressed in the Session are new physical and chemical functionalities coming from interactions between nanoscale building blocks.  These interactions involve electromagnetic, Coulomb and charge-transfer mechanisms.  Examples of functional nanomaterials include colloidal quantum dots, metal nanocrystals, layered structures, nanocrystal complexes, lithographic metastructures and metasurfaces, hybrid nanostructures, bio-assemblies of nanocrystals and dye molecules, bio-conjugates, etc.

Topics: 

  1. Plasmonic nanocrystal assemblies and metastructures with novel optical properties;
  2. Hybrid structures with exciton and plasmon resonances;
  3. Energy and change transfer in hybrid nanomaterials for light harvesting; 
  4. Hot plasmonic electrons in metal nanostructures for photodetectors and photochemical reactions;  
  5. Hybrid nanomaterials for photochemistry; 
  6. Biosensors and bioactuators with nanocrystals and nanostructures; 
  7. Photothermal effects in plasmonic nanostructures: Phase transformations and chemistry; 
  8. Chiral plasmonic metamaterials; 
  9. Bio-conjugated chiral nanocrystals and nanostructures;
  10. DNA-assembled nanostructures for plasmonics, excitonics and optics;   
  11. Excitonic nanomaterials for solar cells and lighting; 
  12. Organic/inorganic solid-state lighting; 
  13. Magnetic nanocrystals and nanostructures;
  14. UV-plasmonics including Aluminum nanostructures;   
  15. Colloidal nanocrystals with complex shapes;  
  16. Functional labels based on nanostructures;
  17. Theoretical models of hybrid nanostructures, metastructures and metamaterials.
