Outline

Force mapping at molecular scale is an important technology in rheology and mechanobiology. Flexible and aromatic photoactive (FLAP) system has been developed as luminescent molecular force probe, which shows force-responsive conformational change with fluorescence color conversion in a real-time and reversible manner. The FLAP molecules are useful for visualizing the stress concentration in polymer films and understanding the force transduction in biological systems.
