Abstract

Organic nanomaterials have attracted more and more attention for their applications in nano-photonics due to their high photoluminescence quantum efficiencies, color tunabilities, and size-dependent optical properties. With the distinctive features of photoluminescence, waveguiding and dimensional confinement, different organic nanostructures, such as 0D nanoparticles, 1D nanowires and 2D nanosheets, have a significant influence on their photonic properties. Therefore, it is of great importance and scientific interest to develop the strategy for tailoring the self-assembled structures with specific photonic behaviors in desired manners. In this mini review, we give a brief review of the recent work on the control of self-assembled organic nanostructures, and the tunable photonic properties of the predetermined structures.
