H. J. Chen, X. H. Wang, and co-workers report shaping the emission spectral profile of quantum dots using the anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) templates. On page 56, the AAO templates are shown to exhibit rich Fabry–Pérot interferences, which can significantly modulate the photoluminescence spectral profiles of the adjacent semiconductor quantum dots. Aside from the spectral modification, a large photoluminescence enhancement of the quantum dots is observed after loading the AAO templates with metallic nanowires sustaining plasmonic resonances.
