The handedness of chiral TbPO4 nanocrystals can be controlled by preparing the nanocrystals in the presence of certain natural chiral acids, such as tartaric acid. We use circularly polarized luminescence measurements to follow the handedness and enantiomeric purity of the produced nanocrystals. Using single particle circularly polarized luminescence microscopy we proved that we obtain enantiomerically pure terbium phosphate nanocrystals when prepared with tartaric acid molecules.
