Abstract

We demonstrate an emulsion-polymerisation technique to embed dibenzoterrylene-doped anthracene nanocrystals in polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) nanocapsules. The nanocapsules require no further protection after fabrication and are resistant to sublimation compared to unprotected anthracene. The room temperature emission from single dibenzoterrylene molecules is stable and when cooled to cryogenic temperatures we see no change in their excellent optical properties compared to existing growth methods. We also show emission from nanocapsules embedded in a thin layer of titanium dioxide, highlighting their potential for integration into hybrid nanophotonic devices.

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1. (a) Chemical structures of DBT, Ac and PMMA, and an energy level diagram of DBT. The two electronic energy levels of interest, $S_{0,n}$ and $S_{1,n}$, are shown, along with their vibration sub-levels. The zero-phonon line (ZPL, 784 nm) is shown as a transition between the $S_{0,0}$ and $S_{1,0}$ states. Blue-detuned pumping to a higher vibrational excited state (765 nm), fast non-radiative decay and red shifted fluorescence (>794 nm) are also shown. An aritst’s impression of a cut through of a PMMA nanocapsule (blue) containing an Ac nanocrystal in typical crystal habit (grey) is shown below. (b) A schematic of the confocal microscope used for the fluorescence imaging of the nanocapsules. Dark green beam indicates the pump light, red is the fluorescence and grey is the white light used for imaging. POL: linear polariser; BPF: band-pass filter; HWP: half-wave plate; 90:10: 90% reflection: 10% transmission beamsplitter; PM: power meter; 50:50: 50% reflection: 50% transmission beamsplitter; L1: first lens; L2: second lens; Obj: microscope objective lens; CCD: charge-coupled device camera; LPF: long-pass filter; MMF 50:50: multimode fibre beam splitter; APD: avalanche photodiode.
