Printable colloidal crystal superstructure for thousand-fold fluorescence enhancement for colorful LEDs, optical sensing and light harvesting

Griffith University, QLD, Australia

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The technology is a new self-assembled, three-dimensional colloidal photonic crystal (CPhC) superstructure, which traps both excitation and fluorescence light, thereby significantly enhancing photon absorbance and emission and prolong emission time. The superstructures can be readily self-assembled over large areas and compatible with inkjet printing.
