Abstract

Diarylethenes were proposed as very promising candidates for optical memory applications due to their thermal stability and fatigue resistance. The latter property of two photochromic molecules of the diarylethene family embedded in polymer films was investigated in this work. The obtained results demonstrate a noticeable influence of the polymer matrix and possible photochemical damage on the fatigue resistance of the photochromic materials.
