A consideration of the development of photochemical systems with functions as optical sensors or switches, discussing materials and chemical systems, technology, and applications for target molecules and optical signal multiplexing. It contains novel applications in electrogenerated chemiluminescence and supramolecular photophysics for sensing chemical and biological analytes.

Table of Contents

Buckets of light; luminescent PET (Photoinduced Electron Transfer) signalling systems; sensors based on electrogenerated chemiluminescence; from superquenching to biodetection - building sensors based on fluorescent polyelectrolytes; luminescent metal complexes as spectroscopic probes of monomer/polymer environments; photorefractive effect in polymeric and molecular materials; dynamic holography in photorefractive liquid crystals; hologram switching and erasing strategies with liquid crystals; novel molecular phototonics materials and devices; molecular recognition events controllable by photochemical triggers or readable by photochemical outputs.
