Smart Optical Materials by Nanoscale Assembly

Smart materials hold great promises for many intrigue applications as they exhibit chemical and physical responses to the applied external stimuli. This presentation will focus on nanostructured materials with responsive optical properties that can find applications in printing, sensing, signage, security documents, and displays. We will discuss our recent progress on the development of chemical and assembly approaches for the fabrication of various nanostructured materials whose optical properties can be dynamically tuned by controlling the spatial arrangement of the nanoscale building blocks. We show that many novel optical materials could be developed by manipulating the diffraction, refraction, birefringence, and electronic resonances through controlling the interaction between light and the nanostructures.
