Multifarious Chiral Nanoarchitectures Serving as Handed-Selective Fluorescence Filters for Generating Full-Color Circularly Polarized Luminescence
A series of full-color circularly polarized luminescence (CPL)-active materials are fabricated by judiciously combining multifarious chiral nanoarchitectures with achiral fluorescence dyes. The investigated nanoarchitectures include organic polymer nanofibers, organic–inorganic hybrid nanoflowers, and inorganic nanoflowers. The as-prepared chiral nanoarchitectures all can act as handed-selective fluorescence filters to powerfully transform unpolarized fluorescent light into circularly polarized luminescence. Also notable, no interaction is required between chiral and fluorescent components for achieving CPL emission. The present study provides a convenient and universal approach for preparing full-color CPL materials. Following the strategy, numerous chiroptical materials with CPL performance can be expected due to the abundant chiral matters and achiral fluorophores.
