Paper Abstract

Metal oxides such as titanium dioxide and zink oxide are well-known semiconductors. They are used in various a wide variety of functional devices. The size and morphology of the material has a substantial effect on device performance. Here, we propose to manufacture a hierarchic assembly of nanomaterials on the micrometer scale to arrive at new functionalities for photonic devices. The construction of the materials follows a bottom-up assembly that mimics processes that occur in nature.
