Paper Abstract

This presentation describes several important applications of steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) instrumentation in the field of nanophotonics. The paper presents a cohesive overview of PL instrument configurations and data analysis methods pertaining to each of the described nanophotonics applications. Key nanomaterials in the nanophotonics field include carbon nanotubes, organic light-emitting diodes and quantum dots. Highlighted carbon nanotube applications focus on the steady state excitation-emission matrix analyses of the semiconducting properties of single-walled nanotubes (SWNTs); these properties are relevant to the implementation of SWNTs in nanophotonics circuitry and high-definition display technology. Quantum dots (QDOTS) are also becoming increasingly important for nanophotonics applications including steady state and time-resolved measurements pertaining to biosensing, tunable bandgap circuitry and cancer imaging-diagnostics. Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDS) are now also recognized for their potential uses in novel display technology and time-resolved PL applications are described as key tools in the OLED research and development arena. The presentation will conclude with a summary of the perceived future of the industrial applications and scientific progress in developing areas of nanophotonics PL.
