With controlled nanometre-sized pores and surface areas of thousands of square metres per gram, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) may have an integral role in future catalysis, filtration and sensing applications. In general, for MOF-based device fabrication, well-organized or patterned MOF growth is required, and thus conventional synthetic routes are not(More)
A critical materials challenge over the next quarter century is the sustainable use and management of the world's natural resources, particularly the scarcest of them. Chemistry's ability to get more from less is epitomized by porous coordination polymers, also known as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), which use a minimum amount of material to build maximum(More)
The tuneable pore size and architecture, chemical properties and functionalization make metal organic frameworks (MOFs) attractive versatile stimuli-responsive materials. In this context, MOFs hold promise for industrial applications and a fervent research field is currently investigating MOF properties for device fabrication. Although the material(More)
Localized plasmon resonances are proposed in a new concept of 3D photonic crystals stacked by hybrid rods made of dielectric-cores and metallic-nanoshells. The resonant plasmon coupling of inner and outer surfaces of the metallic-nanoshells forms the localized plasmon resonances which can be flexibly tuned by mediating the dielectric cores. At the resonance(More)
The incorporation of highly luminescent core-shell quantum dots (QDs) within a metal-organic framework (MOF) is achieved through a one-pot method. Through appropriate surface functionalization, the QDs are solubilized within MOF-5 growth media. This permits the incorporation of the QDs within the evolving framework during the reaction. The resulting(More)

[ 6 ] The high surface area in the thousands of square meters per gram, and the controlled pore size and pore size distribution of MOFs are relevant features for the fabrication of devices that rely on materials with highly controlled transport properties.

Woodpile photonic crystals are amongst the preferred candidates for the next generation of photonics components. However, the photocurable resists used to produce them still lack the optical properties (high-n, non-linearity) suitable for photonics applications. A chemical bath deposition protocol has been adapted to deposit high-n/non-linear chalcogenide(More)
Thin-film composites comprised of NiO and NiO/Au nanoparticles in a porous SiO(2) matrix have been prepared using the sol-gel technique. When at elevated temperatures (200 °C< T<350 °C) and exposed to carbon monoxide, the films undergo reversible changes in optical transmittance at wavelengths in the visible-near IR region. For NiO composite films heated at(More)
A proof-of-concept for the development of a fast and portable Hendra virus biosensor is presented. Hendra virus, a deadly emerging pathogen in Australia, can be co-localized, concentrated and revealed using simultaneously magnetic and luminescent functional particles. This method should be applicable for the early detection of any other virus by targeting(More)
Adv. Mater. 2010, 22, 2463–2467 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag G In the past decade, owing to its unique advantage in generating arbitrary high resolution three-dimensional (3D) structures in both high and low refractive index materials with great simplicity, the two-photon polymerization (2PP) technique has played an important role in micro/nanofabrication of(More)
