The cover picture shows a schematic view of a bipolar antenna for light harvesting and transport surrounded by fluorescence microscopy pictures of individual antenna crystals. Zeolite L microcrystals of cylinder morphology are used as host for organising several thousand dyes as monomers into well defined zones. The enlarged section shows the organisation of individual dye molecules at the domain boundary between dye2 and dye3. The microscopy pictures demonstrate the antenna behaviour: They show the red fluorescence of dye3, located at both ends of the crystals, after selective excitation of the blue dye1 in the middle. The synthesis and characterization of these dye loaded zeolite L sandwiches are described by G. Calzaferri et al. on p. 3456 ff.
