Abstract

original image

Paul S. Weiss and co-workers report on page 302 progress toward the precise assembly and measurement of photoresponsive molecules in well-defined environments. The cover depicts the coordinated photoisomerization of a one-dimensional chain of molecules assembled within a domain boundary of a self-assembled monolayer, measured with a scanning tunneling microscope.
