Highly transparent nanostructured gallogermanatebased glass and glass-ceramic materials are reported on page 364 by M. Allix and co-workers. These materials present nanoscale phase separations, whose size can be tailored depending on the nominal composition. The large variety of accessible compositions combined with precise control of the nanostructure offer a great opportunity to design new highly transparent nanostructured materials with a wide range of tuneable optical properties both in the visible and the infrared ranges.

A plasmonic photonic diode for unidirectional focusing, imaging, and wavelength-division de-multiplexing is achieved through the holographic imprinting of a discrete optical lens into metallic photonic crystals (MPCs). X. P. Zhang et al. focus laser beams of different colors to different angles and different focal lengths with a large dispersion using such a thin-film device. Realization of such functions is based on the spatial chirping of the MPCs, where the gold nanolines are arranged with different periods on different sites of the device.

J. A. Rogers and co-workers exploit a design for visible-blind ultraviolet detection using silicon photodiodes and down-shifting luminophores. The fabricated device exhibits a selective UV response between 300 nm and 360 nm, which exceeds that in the visible range by about 103. An array of such detectors demonstrates the potential for using these structures in UV imagers, and suggests compatibility with large-area, CMOS-compatible Si electronics and photonics.
- Transparent Electrodes: ZnO/Polyfluorene Hybrid LED on an Efficient Hole-Transport Layer of Graphene Oxide and Transparent Graphene Electrode (Advanced Optical Materials 4/2014) (page 304)

An rGO/GO/PFO/ZnO/Al LED is fabricated via simple solution-based techniques by K. ul Hasan Hasan et al. On page 326, they show how graphene can be a simple solution-processable substitute to PEDOT:PSS as an effective holetransport (electron-blocking) layer, and ITO as a transparent conductive electrode in optoelectronic devices. The wide emission range of this LED opens up prospects for demonstrating white light-emitting devices from this novel combination. This could pave the way for cheaper displays.
