Multilayered nanocomposites

Prototype devices based on [metal/metal-oxide/metal] multilayers in which each layer is of nanometric size in order to form a composite with nanoscopic photonic properties. Devices comprise specific designs for large differential interferometric operation for sensor and or light switching applications.

Specific examples concern sensor head for remote temperature monitoring. The system is implemented by means of laser sputtering or by means of electric magnetron sputtering. Devices implemented are based on same metal/metal oxide, or on other metal oxide, the latter comprising rare earth or noble metals.
