22_22/2010Photosensitive Nanocomposites: Highly Non-Linear Quantum Dot Doped Nanocomposites for Functional Three-Dimensional Structures Generated by Two-Photon Polymerization (Adv. Mater. 22/2010)

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.
