Paper: Thermal Irreversible Organic Photochromes for Imaging Systems
Abstract:Development of the novel imaging systems requires application of new recording media in particular photochromic materials which provide the fast and reversible write-erasure of information in real time under laser irradiation. The thermal irreversible photochromic recording media providing unlimited life-time of recorded information are of prime interest for information technologies. These materials exhibit reversible transformation between two spectrally different forms under irradiation only. This paper is devoted to the analysis of own results in the study of photochromic and functional properties for more 100 synthesized photochromic compounds from three classes namely dihetarylethenes, fulgimides and phenoxy-derivatives of quinones. The dependences between properties and the compound structure have been revealed. The best photochromic compounds were used for preparation of photochromic polymer recording media. It was shown that readout of information may achieve by using a photoinduced change of optical density, fluorescence and refraction index. The received results demonstrate that the developed photochromic recording media may be used for increasing information capacity of optical disks for working bitwise and frequency-selective optical memory, photocontrolled devices for page forming and frequency switching, photographic masking, et al.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
