Paper Abstract

Groups around the world are pursuing optoelctronic and magneto-optic properties of graphene-based materials since they hold a lot of promise for future technologies. Quantum dot (QD) decorated graphenic nanohybrids can be candidates for demonstrating energy transfer, while magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) on graphene give rise to interesting electronic phenomena like magneto-optical effects. Graphene containing MNPs are also good candidates for exploring quantum-hall effect. In medicine these materials have demonstrated applications in bioimaging, drug delivery, photothermal treatment and magnetic resonance imaging. A majority of groups working on QD or MNPs have focused on chemical functionalization methods for making graphene-MNP nanohybrids. We have developed a set of small molecule as well as polymeric ligands for noncovalent self-assembly of nanoparticles on graphene. The ligands contain pyrene as an anchor group for graphene and also thiol or dipamine as anchor groups for QD or MNPs. In this presentation we discuss the synthesis and characterization of these materials and outline some early results regarding exploratory device fabrication involving these materials.
