Paper Abstract

CONTACT or Consortium for Nanomaterials for Aerospace Commerce and Technology is a cooperative program between the Air Force Research Laboratory and seven Texas universities focused on four research areas in aerospace. This paper summarizes recent developments in one of those areas, sensors, for eventual use in aircraft and spacecraft. We report direct measurement of spectrally selective absorption properties of PbSe and PbS colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) in Si nanomembrane photonic crystal cavities on flexible plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) substrates. The interaction of CQD absorption with photonic crystal Fano resonances is presented both analytically and experimentally for use in wavelength selective sensors.
