The use of high-quality graphene as a local probe in combination with photo excitation helps to establish a deep mechanistic understanding of charge generation/quenching processes under lying the graphene/environment interface. By combining a non-destructive bottom-up assembly technique with sensitive graphene-based transistors, a bistable [2]rotaxane-graphene hybrid device, which exhibits a symmetric mirror-image photoswitching effect with logic capabilities, is produced.
