Abstract: This paper describes some of our efforts in the area of nanostructured thin film architectures. The resulting interfacial hybrid assemblies are built from (1) organic/polymeric objects based on dendrimer systems, from (2) surface-functionalized Au nanoparticles, and (3) from a variety of semiconducting quantum dots. Dendrimers as polymeric building blocks with a strictly monodisperse particle size distribution in the nanometer range can be functionalized in the core, the scaffold, or at the periphery, thus offering interesting hybrid materials for a wide range of applications. The combination with Au clusters and their local surface plasmon resonances suggests new strategies for optoelectronic devices or unconventional bio-sensor platforms. The possibility of tuning the luminescent properties of semiconducting nanoparticles by size or compositional bandgap engineering complements the assembly kit with building blocks for supramolecular thin film nanocomposite materials.
