Quasiperiodic metasurfaces have great potential in ultrasensitive biosensing, but their development has been slowed by difficulties in fabrication over large areas and simulating their optical properties computationally. To address these challenges in nanophotonics, the Whitesides lab has recently developed a method for high-throughput fabrication and screening of quasicrystalline metasurfaces using template-directed self-assembly combined with Shadow-Sphere Lithography (SSL). In this project, we focused on optimization of the self-assembly process and on the quasicrystal fabrication and characterization. The speed, variety of allowable patterns and sizes, and reproducibility of SSL permit for high-throughput screening of the quasicrystals, which could have applications in biosensing.
