The design, synthesis, and supramolecular organization of a nanocomposite in which nanoscale excitonic interactions between quantum dots and the chiral polymer dramatically enhance the optical activity is reported. This material is highly suitable for application in the emerging field of chiral photonics. KGaA, Weinheim.
