Paper Abstract

We demonstrate the possibility of optically inducing the resolution of a racemic mixture of molecules. We thus measured an optical induction of optical rotation. For this, we used an all optical method based on a pump (Ar-488 nm) - probe (He-Ne-632 nm) experiment exciting a thin layer of a new chiral photoisomerizable chromophore in a PMMA matrix.
