Research Paper Summary by Dr Abel Santos

Realisation and advanced engineering of true optical rugate filters based on nanoporous anodic alumina by sinusoidal pulse anodisation

Optical rugate filters based on nanoporous anodic alumina are produced and precisely engineered by sinusoidal pulse anodisation (i.e. electrochemical oxidation) of aluminium foils. These photonic structures can be used for developing high throughput label-free molecular screening and sensing applications, encoding platforms of information as photonic tags and tracers and self-reporting drug releasing micro-sized containers.
