Hybrid plasmonic nano-emitters: on the interest of controlling the spatial distribution of the active medium
Lunedì 5 giugno 2023 - Ore 14:30 - Aula 24

In microscale optoelectronics, the possibility to precisely control the spatial distribution of the active medium leads to optimization of systems and devices. At the nanoscale, this issue still constitutes a challenge, especially within the frame of hybrid plasmonic nano-emitters based on coupling between quantum emitters and metal nanocavities. We studied and exploited the controlled nanoscale spatial positioning of semiconductor quantum emitters in the close vicinity of metal nanostructures. This control relies on plasmon-assisted nano-polymerization of a photosensitive formulation that hosts nano-emitters. In addition to offering a promising platform for nanochemistry, this approach enables the design of the symmetry of the medium surrounding plasmonic nano-antenna.

Dott. Davide Tiana - University College Cork
In the last decades MOFs have become an important area of research that goes beyond the simple gas-adsorption. Creating defects inside of the MOFs (eg doping of the metal node, missing linker, missing cluster) provides an extra degree of freedom that can be used for tuning the opto-electronic properties of MOFs aiming to use them in catalysis. In the 1st part of the talk I will show how computational chemistry can be used to study MOFs, explaining properties at atomistic level. In the 2nd part I will show how, by combining simulations and experiments, we have been able to create two new photo-catalysts: one able to reduce CO2 to CO, the other capable of producing hydrogen from water splitting without any sacrificial agent.

Dipartimento di Chimica e Chimica Industriale
Is a yearly international conference on the frontiers of Chemical Research. It is organized by the Doctoral School in Chemistry and Materials Science (DSCM) and the International Office of the Dipartimento di Chimica e Chimica Industriale (DCCI). CFF2023 will host 7 Plenary Lectures delivered by outstanding scientists from all over the world. Keynote Lectures will be delivered by 3rd year PhD students, enrolled in DSCM. The Best Plenary Lecture will be selected by the PhD students of DSCM and the author will be invited to hold a short course in the next academic year.
