Enhanced Room Temperature Photoluminescence Quantum Yield in Morphology-controlled J-aggregates (click image to enlarge).

The narrowband photoluminescence quantum yield at room temperature of supramolecular assemblies of cyanine dyes (J-aggregates) is enhanced from 5 % to 60%. Confinement of J-aggregates in a bicontinuous phase in water-alkylamine blends improves the quality of the J-aggregates.
