The light harvesting efficiency of dye-sensitized photoelectrodes was enhanced by coupling a TiO(2) photonic crystal layer to a conventional film of TiO(2) nanoparticles. In addition to acting as a dielectric mirror, the inverse opal photonic crystal caused a significant change in dye absorbance which depended on the position of the stop band. Absorbance(More)
This letter describes a simple synthetic approach to fabricate two-dimensional midinfrared CdSe photonic crystals ~PC! by electrodeposition of CdSe in a polymer template defined using interference lithography. Characterization of the transmission spectra of CdSe PCs with a hexagonal array of 1.3 mm diameter and 2.7 mm pitch air voids showed a well-defined(More)
A surface plasmon (SP) polariton is an electromagnetic wave propagating along the interface between a dielectric and a metal, and its electromagnetic fi eld exponentially decays into the surrounding media. Because the wavevector of the SP mode is larger than that of a photon of the same frequency in vacuum, the SP mode on a fl at surface is nonradiative and(More)

Photoinduced circular anisotropy has been demonstrated in thin films of a main-chain polymeric liquid crystal (PLC) system doped with photochromic W-shaped molecules containing two azobenzene groups by irradiating with circularly polarized light (CPL). Reversible photoinduced circular dichroism (CD) was observed with sign relevant to the handedness of the(More)
The authors present an approach for fabricating stable white light emission from polymer light-emitting electrochemical cells (PLECs) having an active layer which consists of blue-fluorescent poly(9,9-di-n-dodecylfluorenyl-2,7-diyl) (PFD) and π-conjugated triphenylamine molecules. This white light emission originates from exciplexes formed between PFD and(More)
We have demonstrated multicolored reflections showing various whitish colors from a bichiral liquid crystal (LC) film. The bichiral LC film was fabricated by using left-handed and right-handed polymeric cholesteric liquid crystal (CLC) films with two different helical pitches and an isotropic polymer film in between. Color temperatures of the multiple(More)
We fabricated novel hybrid structures composed of a dye-doped low-molecular-weight cholesteric liquid crystal sandwiched by multi-layered polymer cholesteric liquid crystal films and evaluated their lasing characteristics. Lasing was observed with an extremely reduced threshold (12 nJ/pulse) by a factor of 10 compared with that in a simple dye-doped(More)
A cholesteric liquid crystal (CLC) is a self-assembled photonic crystal formed by rodlike molecules, including chiral molecules, that arrange themselves in a helical fashion. The CLC has a single photonic bandgap and an associated one-colour reflection band for circularly polarized light with the same handedness as the CLC helix (selective reflection).(More)
