The PPCP microrods with smooth surfaces could absorb excitation light and propagate the photoluminescence (PL) emission. They showed excellent properties in the low optical loss of a single rod and feasible transfer between neighboring rods. Moreover, PPCP displayed typical aggregation-induced emission enhancement (AIEE) characteristics in the solution state.
