Abstract

The paper describes fabrication of hybrid polymer nanoassemblies possessing polymer nanosheets and metal nanoparticle arrays. Based on a bottom-up approach with ultrathin polymer Langmuir-Blodgett films (polymer nanosheets) and metal nanoparticles, we constructed hybrid nanoassemblies for opto/electric nanodevice applications: nanoscale positioning of metal nanoparticles, free-standing hybrid polymer nanosheets, hybrid polymer nanoassemblies for luminescence sensor application, and enhancement of nonlinear optical (NLO) efficiency via surface plasmon coupling. Assembling nanomaterials such as nanoparticles and organic functional molecules through a bottom-up approach makes it possible to strengthen free-standing nanofilm stability, enhance luminescence of luminescent molecules, and enhance second harmonic light from NLO molecules under the influence of localized surface plasmons. The high potential of hybrid polymer nanoassemblies for precise nanoscale design is also demonstrated.
