Structuring materials on length-scales of 1-100nm changes how they interact with light. Such NanoMaterials offer entirely new possibilities for making photonic devices, and develop our understanding of how light can be confined tightly in small volumes, much smaller than the optical wavelength. But making such nanomaterials is extremely challenging, particularly if in scalable processes. We have developed a new shear-assembly process that orders 200nm nanoparticles into polymeric opals on the kilometre scale, and new approaches for metallo-dielectric composites in plasmonics and metamaterials, producing novel sensing and emission devices. Such structures are highly suited to control through high frequency acoustic and elastomeric deformations.
