In view of the demanding forthcoming applications in nanooptics, it is of prime interest to create functions out-off the plane and to fully exploit the room above the substrate. Accessing the dimension perpendicular to the substrate is so a mandatory step to achieve the decoupling from conducting substrate. Here we present a series of 3D organic building blocks able to self-assemble on flat sp2-carbon based substrates like graphene and expose a chromophore decouled from the surface. The chromophores range from fluorescent dyes to photoswitchable molecules. We will present the optical properties in solution as well as the properties of the self-assembled functional monolayers on flat sp2-carbon based substrates. The first fluorescent molecular self-assembly on graphene will be reported

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
