Abstract

Functional materials such as bulk crystalline semiconductor structures inside MOF waveguides could lead to fibre devices with radically new electronic and photonic degrees of freedom. We report the growth of such materials inside MOF templates via a novel microfluidic high pressure chemical vapour deposition technique.
