Homogeneous coating of photonic macroporous oxides with inorganic nanocrystals

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A simple method to obtain homogeneous sub-monolayer coverage of metal oxide and chalcogenide nanocrystals onto porous oxide supports is described. Quantitative nanoparticle coverage was probed using photonic macroporous oxide supports. Composites of nanocrystals of TiO, FeO or CdS dispersed onto macroporous SiO or ZrO all show a predictable linear shift in the photonic stop band position.
