This Special Symposium focuses on both experimental and theoretical studies on optically active hybrid nanomaterials, such as semiconductors, metals, dielectrics, polymers, biomolecules, etc. The Symposium is dedicated to a wide range of fundamental investigations and applications of the optically active materials, including the bottom-up syntheses, top-down nanofabrication, chemical and physical examinations of new properties of such new hybrid optically active nanomaterials.  

The central issues to be addressed in the Symposium are new physical and chemical functionalities arising from novel nanostructure and/or interactions between nanoscale building blocks. 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. In addition, the studies on the applications of these novel hybrid nanomaterials in the field of biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering are welcomed.

Topics

  1. Plasmonic nanocrystal assemblies and metastructures with novel optical properties and applications;    
  2. Chiral nanocrystals and metamaterials;    
  3. Hybrid structures with exciton and plasmon resonances; quantum and classical regimes of interactions;    
  4. New materials for optically active nanostructures, including Al and TiN;    
  5. Hot plasmonic electrons in nanostructures;    
  6. Time-resolved studies for fast and ultra-fast dynamics in plasmonic and excitonic systems, involving hot electrons, phonons and excitons;    
  7. Quantum effects in plasmonic systems;       
  8. Using nanocrystals to design and assemble optical meta-materials, meta-devices and meta-surfaces;    
  9. Thermoplasmonics and photogeneration of heat in nanostructures;    
  10. Hybrid nanomaterials for catalysis, solar energy conversion, photovoltaics, photochemistry and photocatalysis;    
  11. Hybrid nanomaterials for phototherapy, biophysics, biological sensing, bioimaging, and other biological applications;
