Suppression of self-quenching of fluorescence emission in supramolecular systems is of fundamental interest in the design and development of novel optical materials. While a number of molecular design and assembly strategies have been formulated for the fabrication of molecular crystals with enhanced light emission, parallel explorations based on systematic approaches in the domain of molecular ultrathin films are rare. We have investigated Langmuir-Blodgett films of amphiphilic molecules… CONTINUE READING
