    Title: "Nanoscale optical spectroscopy for the study of heterogeneous systems"
    Affiliation: UNC-Chapel Hill
    Host: Salam/Holtzworth

    Abstract
    Many materials classes show some of mesoscale spatial heterogeneity that is important for functional properties, ranging from biological structure-function relations to domain formation in strongly correlated electron materials. The use of ultrasharp scanning probe tips as optical antennas provides a means to overcome the diffraction limit and extend optical spectroscopy to the nanoscale, in order to investigate the causes and effects of these spatial heterogeneities. This approach is compatible with a broad range of optical modalities, including ultrafast and nonlinear implementations, enabling the study of sub-ensemble and sub-domain behavior. I will discuss several of our recent results in scattering scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM) that have demonstrated an unprecedented degree of specificity, sensitivity, and selectivity in probing nanoscale systems. In particular, with infrared and Raman vibrational s-SNOM spectroscopy, we can directly access information about conductivity variations in semiconducting nanowires and low-dimensional materials, that is important for designing and optimizing their use in devices.
