Fabrication, structural and optical study of self-assembled hyperbolic material

PHD CHEMISTRY, STARTING FALL 2019, BORDEAUX, FRANCE

Nanophotonics explores the possibility of modulating light propagation with very small amount of matter using nanoscale phenomena. The occurrence of plasmons at metal/dielectrics interfaces is one of the very relevant phenomena, which has encouraged, in the recent years, active research efforts towards the fabrication of nanostructured metal-dielectric materials and surfaces. In this project, we use self-assembling block copolymers for the “bottom-up” formulation of original anisotropic plasmonic nanocomposites. In particular, we want to produce and study periodic cylindrical and lamellar assemblies composed of nanometric domains of pure polymer and domains of composite of polymer loaded with a high density of noble metal nanoparticles. The work will include polymer and colloid formulation, thin films structural study by electron microscopy and X-ray scattering, and optical study by spectroscopy and ellipsometry.
