Development of High-performance fast photochromic materials

Research Project Outline

Considerable interest has been focused on organic photochromic materials that change their color upon irradiation with light; the photogenerated species can be reversed to the initial species either by thermally or by subsequent irradiation with a specific wavelength of light. In particular, thermally reversible photochromic molecules offer the opportunity to change and reset the molecular properties by simply turning a light source on and off. In this project, we design and create high-performance fast photochromic materials which could eventually evolve into solid-state photonic materials with unique photoresponsive characters.
