Solution Chemistry Nanolithography of Optical Nanostructures


Solution chemistry nanolithography (inkjet printing) is a dynamically developing technology characterized by relative simplicity (in comparison with photolithography, plasma etching and some others), easy scalability and a great variety of applications (from bioprinting to inorganic metamaterials). Over the past three years, there has undoubtedly been considerable progress in the development of optical and photonic devices. This presentation will provide an overview of the trends and prospects of inkjet printing of optical devices. It will also outline the use of inkjet printing as a simple method for creating complex devices.


Alexander Vinogradov received his PhD in Chemistry in 2010. He did his postdoctoral research at Universität Leipzig where he worked with Prof. Dr. Evamarie Hey-Hawkins. In 2014, he returned to Russia to co-found with his brother, Dr Valdimir Vinogradov, the International Laboratory of Solution Chemistry of Advanced Materials and Technologies (SCAMT) at ITMO University in Saint Petersburg. At SCAMT, Alexander is the Head of the Inkjet Printing of Functional Nanomaterials Laboratory and Industrial Laboratory. In November 2019, he defended his Habilitation thesis. He has authored nearly 80 papers indexed in Scopus.
