Light-driven nanoscale chiral molecular switch: reversible dynamic full range color phototuning

Author affiliations

Abstract

A light-driven nanoscale chiral molecular switch was found to impart its chirality to an achiral liquid crystal host to form a self-organized, optically tunable helical superstructure capable of fast and reversible phototuning of the structural reflection across the entire visible region.
