  • Nanophotonic circuits based on polished diamond thin films are prepared. These circuits cover a wide wavelength range across the entire visible spectrum. Integrated devices are surface functionalized site-specifically and in parallel using dip-pen nanolithography with a minimum linewidth of 100 nm. Multicolor fluorescence is coupled into the underlying photo­nic network using microring resonators and grating structures.
