PHOTONIC NANOSTRUCTURES WITH CONTROLLABLE AND MULTIFUNCTIONAL PROPERTIES Simion Astilean Babes-Bolyai University Faculty of Physics Molecular Spectroscopy Group Cluj-Napoca
Current challenge of nanofabrication To control: the size, shape, composition, spatial organization and chemical (biological) function of nanostructures Artificial nanostructures meet biomolecules
Main points of our research Developing an experimentally inexpensive method of controlled nanofabrication: The method is based on self-assembling process and nanosphere lithography and is able to fabricate large-area of highly ordered and shape-size-controlled nanostructures. Fabrication of multifunctional photonic nanostructures: Periodic arrays of noble-metal nanoparticles, Periodic arrays of nanoholes in metallic films, Photonic crystals, Self-assemblies of functionalized polymer nanospheres, Etc. Using light (photons) to extract and process information on the nanoscale: Optical bio-chemo-sensing, Ultrasensitive spectroscopic analysis, Photonics application, Etc.

Conclusions and Perspectives This project develops an experimentally simple technique for controlling the fabrication of nanostructures. The fabricated nanostructures have a real potential for relevant biosensing, photonics and ultrasensitive spectroscopic applications. This method of nanofabrication could be extended to semiconductors, polymer, ceramics and magnetic materials.
