报告题目：Nanoscale Synthesis and Assembly to Smart Optical Materials
报告内容：Smart materials hold great promises for many intrigue applications as they exhibit chemical and physical responses to the applied external stimuli. This presentation will focus on the synthesis and fabrication of nanostructured materials with responsive optical properties that can find applications in printing, sensing, signage, security documents, displays, and energy conversion. We will discuss our recent advances on the development of rational chemical synthesis of hybrid nanostructures with multiple functionalities and the novel approaches to assembling them into secondary nanostructures whose optical properties can be actively tuned by controlling the spatial arrangement and orientation of the nanoscale building blocks. Many novel optical materials with visible and infrared outputs have been developed by manipulating the interaction between light and the nanostructures, such as diffraction, refraction, birefringence, and electronic resonances.
报告人简介：Prof. Yadong Yin received his B.S. (1996) and M.S. (1998) in Chemistry from the University of Science and Technology of China, and Ph.D. (2002) from the University of Washington, Seattle (with Prof. Younan Xia). In 2003 he became a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley under the supervision of Prof. A. Paul Alivisatos, and then a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2005. He joined the faculty at the Department of Chemistry, University of California, Riverside in 2006, and became a Full Professor in 2014. His recent recognitions include Cottrell Scholar Award (2009), DuPont Young Professor Grant (2010), 3M Nontenured Faculty Grant (2010), NSF CAREER award (2010), and NML Researcher Award (2016). He is currently an associate editor of the Journal of Materials Chemistry C, and also serves on the editorial board for NPG Asia Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, SCIENCE CHINA Materials, ChemNanoMat, Research, and Chem.
