Paper Abstract

Recent research results on DNA-lipid complexes have shown various attractive features on E/O or O/E devices, optical memories, switches and sensors by intercalating optical dye into DNA double helix. DNA devices absorbed water under high humidity which led to decreases of optical functions. However, it is possible to improve the stability of DNA devices by encapsulating the DNA-lipid complexes into sol-gel materials or synthetic polymers so that water permeation is prevented by glass or synthetic polymers to stabilize and to keep the optical functions for a long time. This research aims at stability improvements of the DNA photon devices by sealing the DNA devices either by sol-gel glass or polymer blending.
