Controlling material properties through nanotechnology

THRUST 3 – Nanostructured materials

Because of growing interest in nanotechnology in different fields, glasses are increasingly being considered for the production of nanostructures.

Photodissolution of metals at the glass surface with a femtesecond laser

Diffusion of metals inside glasses using femtosecond laser pulses.

Impact

Incorporation of metallic clusters into glasses to enhance photosensitivity and improve control on nanostructuration.Possibility to induce and control plasmonic effects in As2S3 microstructured fibers.
