Optical materials news, December 2019

By taking advantage of polarons and plasmons, researchers have been able to develop optical nanoantennas from a conducting polymer.

A new model has revealed how tiny tweaks to the molecular shapes in non-fullerene acceptors can improve the performance of organic solar cells.

A synthetic actuator made from thermo-responsive liquid crystal polymer networks and a coat of dye can learn to bend and walk in response to light.

drug-loaded silica nanoparticles target the blood vessels that supply tumors with oxygen and nutrients to ‘starve’ cancer cells

A new Raman spectroscopy technique can assess the chemical composition and structure of metallic particles with a diameter of just 0.5nm to 2nm.

By encapsulating perovskite nanocrystals in both silica and plastic hairs, researchers have enhanced their ability to withstand moisture.

By placing silver nanocubes on a thin layer of gold above a pyroelectric material, researchers have created a new multispectral photodetector.
