Dyes inserted into the parallel nanochannels of a fully organic crystal show efficient light conversion over a wide visible spectral region, with 100 % conversion from UV to blue light. The Figure shows crystals containing either two (bottom) or three (top) dyes under UV illumination, and a top view of the structure of the dyes inserted into nanochannels (right).
