Photonic metal–polymer resin nanocomposites with chiral nematic order

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mesoporous resins with chiral nematic order were used as scaffolds to construct novel iridescent metal–polymer composites. Gold, silver and palladium nanoparticles were formed by an in situ reduction reaction. We have investigated the effects of concentration and time on the deposition. As a proof-of-concept, we demonstrate that this process can be extended to patterning photonic resins by inkjet printing.
