Luminescence read-out of nanoparticle phase state

Luminescence read-out of nanoparticle phase state
Luminescence read-out of nanoparticle phase state
We report that the phase state of bistable gallium nanoparticles, controlled by optical or electron beam excitations, can be identified via measurements of their cathodoluminescent emission, thus offering an innovative conceptual basis for the development of high density nonvolatile phase-change memories. Changes of up to 20% in visible emission intensity are observed following low-fluence optical or electron beam induced phase switching in a monolayer of 60 nm particles.

Abstract

We report that the phase state of bistable gallium nanoparticles, controlled by optical or electron beam excitations, can be identified via measurements of their cathodoluminescent emission, thus offering an innovative conceptual basis for the development of high density nonvolatile phase-change memories. Changes of up to 20% in visible emission intensity are observed following low-fluence optical or electron beam induced phase switching in a monolayer of 60 nm particles.
