21_07/2009Fluorescent Nanostructures: Direct Laser Writing of Nanosized Oligofluorene Truxenes in UV-Transparent Photoresist Microstructures (Adv. Mater. 7/2009)

Fluorescent nanostructures within a transparent microstructure can be achieved via direct laser writing. On p. 781, Alexander Kuehne, Peter Skabara, Martin Dawson, Richard Pethrick, and co-workers report on a novel UV-transparent photoresist that incorporates star-shaped nanometer-sized oligofluorene truxenes. The method and materials will find applications in optical, electro-optical, and photonic devices. (Cover artwork by Leif Heuser).
