Abstract

original image

Baohua Jia, Min Gu, and co-workers report on p. 2463 on novel quantum dot functionalized photosensitive nanocomposites showing ultrahigh third-order nonlinearity. The cover image shows functional three-dimensional micronano photonic structures, for example, photonic crystals can be fabricated in such active nanocomposites using the versatile two-photon poly-merisation method, opening various possibilities in active micro/nano devices, such as ultrafast switching, signal regeneration, and high speed demultiplexing systems.
