Merging of gold and semiconductor at nanoscale
Date of Issue2014

Composite semiconductor nanoclusters of different materials could provide unique properties which are usually inaccessible by single component nanostructures. Interaction between quantum confined electronic states of a semiconductor part and dialectic confined plasmons of a metallic part could increase optical nonlinearity of the medium. However, the main challenge of combining materials with large lattice mismatches together in various shapes still remains. [5th Award]
