    Optical Technique Delivers Real-Time Measure of Chirality Over Broad Wavelength Range

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A research team from Politecnico di Milano and the University of Bayreuth (Germany) has developed an approach for the quick measurement of chirality across a broad wavelength range. In molecules, chirality occurs when molecules contain the same atoms, but arranged in mirror-image configurations — much like a pair of hands.

    The method addresses the challenge of distinguishing the chirality of a molecule; chiral molecules are almost identical in their physiochemical property.

    Circular dichroism — an optical property for which left-handed and right-handed enantiomers (chiral drug molecules with opposite handedness) exhibit different absorption of polarized light — is used by scientists to determine molecular…
