Paper Abstract

The spectroscopic properties of several spiropyrans has been studied. Absorption and emission spectra has been recorded and the transient states and species identified. Reaction mechanisms responsible for the photocoloration of spiropyrans are discussed and the use of these materials for 3D memory devices is analyzed.
