Nanostructure Engineering  –– from fabrication to device applications

polymer, photonics, biotechnologies, nanotechnology

Abstract:
There are many potential applications of micro- and nanoscale polymer structures in photonics and biotechnologies, where nanostructures and precise dimensional controls are necessary to produce the desired functionalities. Critical to all these applications is the ability to fabricate nanostructures in a high-throughput and cost-effective manner. I will discuss a technique that has attracted great attention in recent years, namely the nanoimprint technology. Nanoimprinting uses a hard mold to mechanically deform a polymer material to create nanoscale structures, which provides unprecedented resolution and speed in nanopatterning. Due to its compatibility with polymer materials, nanoimprint and its variants naturally find unique applications in polymer-based devices, including organic electronics and photonics. In this regard, I will describe a new method for patterning conductive polymer electrodes for organic thin film transistors, and nanostructure control for OLED and organic photovoltaic applications. I will also discuss our study of polymer-based optical microresonators as biosensors and high-frequency ultrasound detectors.
