Circularly polarized luminescence (CPL) switching has attracted great attention due to the potential applications in chiral photonics and electronics. However, the lack of examples to achieve switchable CPL within a single material in the dry solid state hampers the scope of applications. Herein, we demonstrate a crystalline chiral polymer film as a polarizing medium consisting of radially assembled twisted crystallites, where achiral aggregation-induced emissive luminogens (AIEgens) are confined between the twisted crystalline stacks, eventually yielding handedness-switchable CPL by simple film tilting.
