ICReDD/FCC International Seminar: Maximising dissymmetry and handling directionality in chiral materials

Date and Time: 9th, Sept. from 16:30-18:00
Place: Seminar Room 1, Frontier Research in Applied Sciences Building

Title: Maximising dissymmetry and handling directionality in chiral materials 

Presenter: Prof. Matthew J. Fuchter (Imperial College London)

Abstract:  We have an ongoing interest in the development of conjugated chiral molecules which can emit and detect circularly-polarized light within thin film materials and in organic electronic devices. Using a range of chiral materials – helicenes, fullerenes and polymers – this talk will give an overview of our strategies to maximise the selectivity of such chiral-optical responses through molecular design, materials processing and device architecture.
