Chirality: a new opportunity for molecular spintronics
Chirality - ISCR highlighted in "En direct des labos" @CNRS INC Actualités

The ability of chiral materials to interact with a circularly polarized light wave could find applications in molecular electronics such as optoelectronics. As part of European and national projects, chemists from the Rennes Institute of Chemical Sciences (CNRS/ENSCR/Rennes 1 University) have developed novel chiral materials able  to interfere with both the polarization state of the light and the property of electronic spin, opening up new approches for information technology. These results are the subject of two publications in the J. Am. Chem. Soc. ...
