Study on NIR Optical Rewritable Film Based on Dithienylethene and Upconversion Nanocrystals
Abstract:Tm3+ and Yb3+ codoped NaYF4 upconversion (UC) nanoparticles (NPs) with intense ultraviolet (UV) fluorescence were synthesized using a solvothermal approach. NIR optical rewritable film incorporated with the UCNPs and dithienylethene (DTE) were performed for optical storage based on the photochromic reaction of DTE induced by the intense UV from themultiphoton UC fluorescence of NaYF4NPs. The photochromic DTE did not exhibit obvious fatigue after repetitious write/erase cycles using NIR/green irradiation.
