Tailoring the Structures and Photonic Properties of Low-Dimensional Organic Materials by Crystal Engineering

Abstract

The low-dimensional organic materials gave rise to tremendous interests in the optoelectronic applications, owing to their controllable photonic property. However, the controlled synthesis approaches for organic nano-/micro- architectures are very difficult to be obtained, because the the weak interaction (Van der Waals’ force) between the organic molecules could not dominate the kinetic process of crystal growth. We report a simple method, selective adhesion to organic crystal plane by hydrogen-bonding interaction, for modulating the crystal growth process, which lead to the self-assembly of one organic molecule into two-dimensional (2D) microsheets with obvious asymmetric light propagation and one-dimensional (1D) microrods with low propagation loss, respectively. The method of tailoring the structures and photonic properties for fabricating different micro-structures would provide enlightenment for the development of tailor-made mini-sized devices for photonic integrated circuits.
