- Electrically Driven Quantum Light Sources
Alberto Boretti, Lorenzo Rosa, Andrew Mackie and Stefania Castelletto
Article first published online: 30 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adom.201500022
Compact electrically excited photon sources with quantum properties and their applications are reviewed. Many physical systems can be used to fabricate an electrically driven device. Designs and realizations based on micropillar cavities formed from n- and p-doped GaAs distributed Bragg reflectors with integrated active InGaAs quantum dots, as well as nanowires, are key recent results in the direction to achieve the highest mode confinement in compact systems.
- Manipulating Optical Properties of ZnO/Ga:ZnO Core–Shell Nanorods Via Spatially Tailoring Electronic Bandgap

Enhancing optical and electrical properties of ZnO nanostructures via surface doping is demonstrated by Ga:ZnO–ZnO core–shell nanorods, which are grown by a genetic two-step method. Low-temperature photoluminescence and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy prove the n+ shell significantly suppresses the surface-related recombination by spatially modulating the electronic band structure. The study provides a significant physical insight in designing optoelectronic devices.
- Unveiling the Origin of Third Harmonic Generation in Hybrid ITO–Plasmonic Crystals
Heykel Aouani, Miguel Navarro-Cía, Mohsen Rahmani and Stefan A. Maier
Article first published online: 30 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adom.201500112
A hybrid plasmonic crystal for reaching a higher nonlinear upconversion rate is proposed and the physical mechanism behind the enhancement is unveiled by demonstrating that the nonlinear signal contains a unique spectral fingerprint regarding its origin. This opens new opportunities for understanding and optimizing nonlinear light–matter interactions in complex nanoscale media.

Controlled assembly of polymorphic organic materials into well-defined microstructures with specific properties is desirable for next-generation optoelectronic devices. Here, a multistep drop-casting technique is developed for the selective fabrication of kinetically and thermodynamically stable polymorphic microfibers and microplates with tunable optical responses in the linear and nonlinear optical regimes.
- Multistimuli-responsive White Luminescent Fluids Using Hybrid Lanthanide Metal–Coordinate Complex Probes
Pangkuan Chen and Niels Holten-Andersen
Article first published online: 26 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adom.201400493
Intense white luminescence in aqueous solution is achieved via coordination of mixed lanthanide ions with nonsubstituted 2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine. Chromic properties of the lanthanide hybrid molecular solutions are highly responsive to stimuli, such as changes in solvent composition, pH, temperature, anion binding, and mechanical force due to the dynamic Ln(III) coordination bonds.
