Luminescence Properties and Electronic Structure of Pristine and Funcionalised Nanodiamonds - Diamondoids
- The optimised structure of a pentamtane-Au20 hybrid system.

Diamondoids can be considered as ideal, surface
passivated diamond clusters. They are versatile materials because they
can be functionalised by chemical as well as physical means and then
self-assembled on surfaces. We propose to study changes in the
electronic structure and optical properties of pristine and doped
diamondoids to control and exploit their
luminescence properties in close cooperation with theory groups. A key aspect is the relationship between functional groups, and doping sites on one side, and wavelength and quantum efficiency of fluorescence light on the other side. Further, we plan to prepare diamondoid-metal cluster hybrids and to investigate the electronic response and coupling
between the metals and the diamondoids. Functionalised hybrids are expected to be promising candidates for photonic materials such as bright, nanoscale light emitters.
