Piezoresponsive fluorescent (PRF) materials are highly promising for applications in deformation, flaw detection and haptic sensing. However, traditional PRF materials generally suffer from low sensitivity and fluorescence quenching processes. This study involved the preparation of H-aggregated dyes with weak supramolecular interactions, which showed enhanced emission under a low pressure.
