Optically Active CdSe/CdS Nanoplatelets Exhibiting Both Circular Dichroism and Circularly Polarized Luminescence

News: In this paper, chiroptical 2D CdSe/CdS nanoplatelets (NPLs) are prepared by ligand exchange approach, exhibiting both circular dichroism (CD) and circularly polarized luminescence (CPL). Furthermore, the CD and CPL signals are easily tuned via the design of the CdS-island structuration of the shell and its thickness which are controlled with the reaction time.

extrait choisi parmi plusieurs thèmes : la photochirogénèse, étude de l’apparition de la chiralité du vivant sous l’effet de la lumière polarisée, et plus généralement la photochimie prébiotique, c’est-à-dire l’apparition de systèmes riches en énergie chimique (biomolécules).

Ultrafast relaxation investigated by photoelectron circular dichroism: an isomeric comparison of camphor and fenchone

News: Circular dichroism in the photoelectron angular distribution decays exponentially in ∼730 fs from a +9% forward amplitude during the first hundreds of femtoseconds to reach an asymptotic −2% backward amplitude after to have photoexcited at ~6 eV. This time-scale is drastically shorter than in fenchone, its isomer. Our analysis allows us to evaluate the impact of the anisotropy of excitation and reveal a breakdown of the Franck-Condon approximation.
