Some of our efforts indesigning, assembling/synthesizing, and characterizing nanostructured materials based on nanoporous alumina templating are summarized. Not only are interesting polymeric and organic–inorganic hybrid nanostructures generated, but functionality is also derived from using the templated nanocomposite architectures for all kinds of applications in sensing technologies based on integrated optics principles.
