Paper Abstract

Organic molecules have been dispersed in polymers and used in 3D memory devices. The time resolved spectra of their transient species and kinetics of the photoinduced reaction have been studied by means of ultrafast time resolved absorption and emission spectroscopy. The reaction mechanism and rates have been determined and some photochromic materials have been used successfully to store and access information in 3D format.
