Abstract [en]

Poly-3-hexylthiophene (P3HT) nanofibers are 1D crystalline semiconducting nanostructures, which are known for their application in photovoltaics. Due to the internal arrangement, P3HT nanofibers possess optical anisotropy, which can be enhanced on a macroscale if nanofibers are aligned. Alternating electric field, applied to a solution with dispersed nanofibers, causes their alignment and serves as a method to produce solid layers with ordered nanofibers. The transmission ellipsometry measurements demonstrate the dichroic absorption and birefringence of ordered nanofibers in a wide spectral range of 400–1700 nm. Moreover, the length of nanofibers has a crucial impact on their degree of alignment. Using electric birefringence technique, it is shown that external electric field applied to the solution with P3HT nanofibers can cause direct birefringence modulation. Dynamic alignment of dispersed nanofibers changes the refractive index of the solution and, therefore, the polarization of transmitted light. A reversible reorientation of nanofibers is organized by using a quadrupole configuration of poling electrodes. With further development, the described method can be used in the area of active optical fiber components, lab-on-chip or sensors. It also reveals the potential of 1D conducting polymeric structures as objects whose highly anisotropic properties can be implemented in electro-optical applications.​

Abstract [en]

The recent development of photonics and applications puts new challenges for systems using emission, transmission and modulation of light. For these reasons, novel optical materials attract a special interest for their enabling properties for novel technologies.

In this work, we performed the research on fundamental properties and the possibility of implementation of electro-optical response of Poly-3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl (P3HT) nanofibers, which belong to the class of organic semiconductor crystalline materials. Our research demonstrated that an external electric field allows controlling the orientation of nanofibers dispersed in a solution by changing the electrical properties of P3HT crystals. This method was used to introduce a collective alignment of P3HT nanofibers and to impact the optical properties of the colloid. The spectroscopic and polarization measurements show that P3HT nanofibers possess optical anisotropy in a wide range of visible spectrum. This property combined with the ability to manipulate the orientation of nanofibers dynamically, was used for direct phase and intensity modulation of transmitted light. Along with these investigations, several engineering and technology tasks were solved. We have designed the transverse electro-optical cell using all-optical-fiber approach, as well as the longitudinal electro-optical cell was fabricated using a novel polymer molding technique.

The obtained research results demonstrate the potential of P3HT crystalline nanofibers as a material class of large niche of applications, not only limited to photovoltaics but also being implemented in electro-optical systems to control light polarization and propagation.
