Colloidal plasmonic nanostructures have been studied quite extensively in the research area of heterogeneous catalysis long before the introduction of the concept of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The significant progress achieved in the past twenty years in chemical synthesis has enabled precise control over not only the size but also the shape of the metal nanostructures, and therefore they have attracted intense interest not only in catalysis but also optoelectronics due to the well-known effect of localized surface plasmon resonance. This presentation will introduce the recent advances in the seeded growth of colloidal plasmonic nanostructures in confined spaces, discuss how multiple functionalities could be integrated through these novel synthesis strategies, and further demonstrate their unique optical properties and applications that can be enabled through the manipulation of their spatial arrangement and orientation. The combination of space confinement and seed-mediated growth strategies is believed to offer significant advantages over the conventional ones in creating a large variety of nanomaterials with novel plasmonic properties.
Prof. Yadong Yin received his B.S. (1996) and M.S. (1998) in Chemistry from the University of Science and Technology of China, and Ph.D. (2002) from the University of Washington, Seattle (with Prof. Younan Xia). In 2003 he became a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley under the supervision of Prof. A. Paul Alivisatos, and then a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2005. He joined the faculty at the Department of Chemistry, University of California, Riverside in 2006, and became a Full Professor in 2014. His recent recognitions include Cottrell Scholar Award (2009), DuPont Young Professor Grant (2010), 3M Nontenured Faculty Grant (2010), NSF CAREER award (2010), and NML Researcher Award (2016). He is currently an associate editor of the Journal of Materials Chemistry C, and also serves on the editorial board for NPG Asia Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, SCIENCE CHINA Materials, ChemNanoMat, Research, and Chem.
