Cheryl Law - IPAS Best Transdisciplinary Paper Award

Aluminum anodization technology underwent breakthrough developments after the seminal studies by Masuda and co-workers introducing the two-step anodization process. This milestone discovery boosted intensive research activity in nanoporous anodic alumina (NAA) technology, spreading the applicability of this unique nanomaterial across multiple disciplines such as nanofabrication, photonics, photocatalysis, lasing and sensing. NAA produced by anodisation of aluminium possesses highly controllable and versatile nanopore geometry, and tailorable chemical and optical properties. In this presentation, I will introduce the properties of NAA as an ideal platform material for developing nanoporous photonic crystals, demonstrating its potential through various sensing studies.
