(Article without Abstract)
Inside Front Cover Picture:
Photorefraction, i.e., a light-induced change of the refractive index, is
uncovered as general feature of light-induced linkage isomers in [ML5NO]n±
compounds, independent of the metals M, the ligands L, or the charge n.
Dominik Schaniel and co-workers report that huge amplitudes of
refractive-index changes, up to 10–2, give rise to pronounced
holographic light scattering, which is visualized by impressively bright cones
of scattered light, as shown on the inside cover.
