(70a) Functional Chiral Nanostructures
This talk will address (1) the origin of the uniquely high values of optical anisotropy; (2) mechanisms of chirality transfer in inorganic materials; and (3) differences/similarities with chiral supramolecular, liquid crystal, and biological assemblies. Emerging venues for practical realizations of chiral inorganic nanoassemblies related to circular polarization spectroscopy in terahertz spectral window will be discussed.
