5_07b/2009Electrical conductivity: Small 7/2009

The cover picture shows images of highly fluorescent and semiconducting organic nanowires self-assembled from a special cyanstilbene-type aromatic molecule with trifluoromethyl substituents. Also shown are the uniformly patterned arrays of nanowires, fabricated by a simple, one-step soft-lithography method. Aligned nanowire assembly with J-type intermolecular stacking shows very high birefringence, dichroism, polarized emission, and electrical conductivity. For more information, please read the Communication by S. Y. Park et al. beginning on page 804.
