Title: Optical Properties and Lasing Physics in Flexible Fibers Doped with Nanocrystals
Functional nanomaterials can be doped or embedded into one-dimensial flexible polymer fibers, such as dye molecules, semiconductor quantum dots, Rare earth luminescent ions, and upconversion nanoparticles etc., realizing the functionalization of optical properties and physical effects in nanofibers. Recently, perovskite nanocrystals show excellent photoelectric properties and potential applications in micro-nano photoelectric devices such as photovoltaic cells, nano lasers and light-emitting diodes. Therefore, on the basis of our previous research on flexible optical waveguide and optical detection, this project plans to dope perovskite nanocrystals into polymer nanofibers, obtaining the functional flexible fiber to assemble optical micro-cavity by micro-nano manipulation, and then investigating the optical properties and lasing mechanism of functional flexible fibers and micro-cavity, finally developing new type of nanofiber laser device with threshold down to 100 nJ/cm^2. The research contents include: luminescent characteristics, optical waveguide characteristics, laser emission mechanism and prototype device research. These studies will provide new approaches and early foundations for the development of fiber optics and integrated optics at micro-nano scale.
