Paper Abstract

Ultrathin materials and nano-structuring are becoming essential for the functionalization of optical surfaces. In the talk we will show how ultrathin metals can be exploited to create competitive transparent electrodes. At the same time they can be used to create nanostructured surfaces through mass scalable dewetting and etching techniques. After presenting the techniques, we will focus on the applications made possible by these materials and technologies, including self-cleaning or easy-to-clean display screens, efficient indium-free light emitting diodes and solar cells, antireflective structures for the laser industry and super-wetting surfaces for biology.
