Description of the thesis topic
We aim to create chiral carbon nanomaterials (CNM) (nano-helices) with controlled helicities and pitches. They are extremely attractive objects because they are chemically and thermally stable, exhibiting high photostability and intense photoluminescence. The goal of this project is to induce a controllable spectral circular polarization and to observe the non-linear chiroptic properties of these CNMs. Their morphologies make it possible to probe the effect of symmetry breaking at the sub-micrometric scale, currently unattainable by the molecular approach or the "top-down" approach.
The PhD candidate will work under the co-direction between Reiko Oda (CBMN) and Dario Bassani (ISM) both the laboratories in Bordeaux University, Talence-Pessac campus. Oda and Bassani are both group leaders in complementary fields (Colloid Chemistry, Chiral Nanoobjects, chiroptical spectroscopy, photophysics and photochemistry). The thesis subject is in the context of an ANR project which will be run in close collaboration with a few other groups (spectroscopy, physics, simulation...).
Constraints and risks
The thesis work will be principally performed in the organic chemistry laboratory with the usual chemicals, along with the use of spectroscopy, electron microscopy, techniques.
