Spiraling into control: A photoresponsive supramolecular assembly demonstrates that light, along with heating (Δ) and cooling (), can cause chiral communication between molecules. This effect leads to bias in the helicity of the complex, causing a reversible switching of macroscopic handedness, as shown by a reversal of sign of the circularly polarized luminescence (CPL) that is emitted.
