Paper Abstract

Recently, there has been much interest in polymer films having azo dyes in the side chain because of their ability to record optical information1,2) . The irradiation of linearly polarized laser beam on azo-dye-doped polymer films induces optical anisotropy due to trans-cis photoisomerization of azo dyes3) . If the photoinduced anisotropy can be preserved for a long time, the polymer films work as optical recording materials.
