Abstract
Dielectric Mie resonators and quantum-confined semiconductors enable an unrivaled control over light absorption and excited electrons. Here, we embed photoluminescent silicon nanocrystals into a planar array of SiO2 nanocylinders, and experimentally demonstrate a powerful concept: the resulting metamaterial preserves the nanocrystal radiative properties and inherits the spectrally-selective absorption properties of the nanocylinders. This hierarchical approach provides increased photoluminescence intensity without plasmonic components. This spectral selectivity of absorption paves the way for an effective light down-conversion scheme to increase the efficiency of solar cells. The demonstrated principle is general and can be applied to other semiconductor quantum dots, ions or molecules.
