Photochromes: Quantitative IR Readout of Fulgimide Monolayer Switching on Si(111) Surfaces (Adv. Mater. 3/2013)



original image

Photoactive monolayers on Si(111) surfaces are of considerable interest for nanotechnological applications. Karola Rück-Braun, Catherine Henry de Villeneuve, and co-workers show on page 416 that surface compositions of fulgimide monolayers under visible and UV rradiation can be derived from in situ IR spectroscopy.
