讲座题目:Photonics of Bio-assembled Nanostructures: Ultrafast Plasmonic Energy Transfer, Generation of Hot Electrons and Chirality 
Different materials such as semiconductors, metals, biomolecules and polymers are used to fabricate hybrid nanostructures. Semiconductor quantum dots and wires are good optical absorbers and excitations in these nanocrystals (excitons) are long-lived and can be efficiently transferred via Coulomb interaction. Metal nanocrystals exhibit strong plasmon resonances and have the ability to scatter light very efficiently. Biomolecules and polymers allow us to create assemblies with precisely positioned optically-active nanocrystals, using approaches such as the DNA-origami technique. This talk will discuss a few key energy-related phenomena that appear in hybrid nanostructures:  
(1) Using plasmonic nanostructures, one can strongly enhance optical generation of heat and also confine high temperature in small volumes [1,2]. 
(2) Nanostructures with plasmonic hot spots efficiently generate energetic (hot) electrons, which can be used for photochemistry and photodetection [3,4,5]. 
(3) Colloidal nanocrystal assemblies with plasmon resonances allow us to strongly enhance the chiral optical response (circular dichroism) of biomolecules [6,7,8]. 
(4) Using DNA-assembled nanoparticle arrays made of different metals, one can transfer plasmonic signals coherently and with very small losses [9].
