Paper Title:
Electrophoretic Deposition of Star Polymer-Europium Chalcogenide Nanocomposite Films
  Abstract

The electrophoretic deposition of polystyrene/divinylbenzene (PS/DVB) star polymer-europium sulphide (EuS) nanocomposite films from a colloidal suspension is reported. Liquid suspension, containing both the PS/DVB star polymer and EuS nanocrystals were prepared by separately injecting dichloromethane (DCM) based solutions of EuS nanocrystals and of the star polymers, respectively, into a stratified liquid combination of hexane and DCM. Scanning electron microscopy illustrates images of the dependence of surface morphology on nanocrystal concentration of the PS/DVB-EuS star polymer film. These polymer-encased nanocrystal films may be a more practical option for the fabrication of magneto-optical thin film devices, such as optical switches, optical isolators, and optical memories.
