Adv Sci (Weinh). 2015 Jul 14;2(11):1500130. eCollection 2015."H"-like organic nanowire heterojunctions with two parallel 2-acetyl-6-dimethylamino-naphthalene wires vertically bridged by one 2,4,5-triphenylimidazole wire are prepared via cooperative molecular assembly in liquid phase. The exciton conversion at the junction interfaces is beneficial for the design of multichannel light-controlled photo-switches. The results provide better understanding of molecular assembly toward specific structures and open up new prospects for the creation of novel photonic materials.
