Waveguiding properties of perylene microcrystals synthesized by retarding the growth along the π-stack direction

Author affiliations

Abstract

Selective, hard to realize growth retardation of the π-stacking direction over the edge-packing direction has been achieved in perylene microcrystals using an aryl amphiphile. The perylene microcrystals grow predominantly along the edge-packing direction resulting in novel and hitherto unknown perylene square rods. The rods show exciton–polariton waveguiding along the rod axis even though it corresponds to pure edge-packing of the molecules, which is unprecedented in organic microcrystals.
