Novel photonic materials made up on self-assembly particles for sensing applications

Spanish researchers from the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) and the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (ICMM-CSIC) have formed highly-porous metal-organic framework particles that spontaneously assemble into well-ordered 3D superstructures that present photonic crystal properties. Their discoveries are expected to find applications in the design of novel photonic materials for sensing applications, among others.
