Nandhakumar, Iris, Gabriel, Timothy, Li, Xiahong, Attard, George S., Markham, Matthew, Smith, David C. and Baumberg, Jeremy J. (2004) Optical properties of nanostructured mesoporous semiconductor films In Nanostructured Materials in Alternative Energy Devices: 2004 MRS Spring Meeting Symposium Proceedings. vol. 822, Materials Research Society. 174 pp, pp. 91-96.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Direct liquid crystal templating from non-ionic polyoxyethylene surfactants has been utilised to produce well-defined birefringent films of nanostructured cadmium telluride with mesoporous architectures of extended spatial periodicities. The template mixtures and films were characterised by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and polarising optical microscopy to ascertain the presence of a regular nanostructure. UV-VIS reflectance spectroscopy was employed to investigate the films’ optical properties.
