Florian Kulzer, Ted Xia and Michel Orrit Single Molecules as Optical Nanoprobes for Soft and Complex Matter Angewandte Chemie International Edition 49
Hit singles: Single-molecule optical approaches have opened a new way of exploring the properties of materials on nanometer scales. For example, a confocal image of perylenediimide, an organic dye molecule, in a thin film of supercooled glycerol reveals a spatially dynamical heterogeneity (see picture). This Review highlights the recent main uses of the single molecules in studies of condensed matter, in particular soft and complex matter.
