    Abstract

    We report the ultrafast quenching of the ring-closure reaction in BTE-based photochromic switches self-assembled on gold nanoparticles. The photoinduced population dynamics of the switches reveals that the electronic states of the switch molecules are strongly mixed with the states of the gold particles.
